A pleasure, Jennidear.

For Aussies in WW2 (only) there is a similar site that gives even more
detail including actual images of enlistment, service records and discharge
documents, etc. it is:
http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/ It only covers people who served in Australian
forces including the *Merchant Navy*, but has links under the "Who is not
included section" to sites which have details of Australians serving in
overseas forces.

Now, anyone who really, really *doesn't* want to stay up way past their
bedtime better give:
http://www.oldbaileyonline.org/ a miss. <G> It is fascinating. It will
eventually contain details of more than 100,000 criminal trials at the Old
Bailey in London between 1674 and 1834. Folk with Convict ancestors tried
there will be able to access the actual Trial Proceedings. At the moment the
site contains 'only' some 22,000 cases covering the period December 1714 to
December 1759 but more are being progressively added so you need to re-visit
from time-to-time.
