We are currently copying to disk details from the Enlistment Books which contain the details of all who reported to the Boy's Technical School, the Army Technical School (Boys), the Army Apprentice School and the Army Apprentice College. We then hope to digitise the records and transfer the books to the National Archives at Kew.
When this is completed the Books will no longer be available for reference, viewing at Reunions or for extracting information when trying to organise Group reunions.
We are transferring all the details, by Group years, onto CD's. These can be purchased for a small fee of £5.50 ( Includes P&P) from a Heritage Member.
The CD's are compiled in two formats. Microsoft Works (.wdb) and Microsoft Excel (.xls), so you should be able to read the contents easily in whichever format you choose.
The designs of the CD's are available as a Group year , as shown below. (This CD shows the groups that enlisted during 1953).
Groups Currently Available:
Groups 1 to 29, Transfers from the School of Electric Lighting, Groups 39, 42A - 80C, Intakes 81 - 85.
Transfers from the Ex RE Darland Boys is in hand, and Groups 30 - 38 and Intakes 86 - 94 will be done as soon as possible.
