On 2nd October I received a letter from the Historical Disclosure Department. To obtain the record was going to take four months - that made than January 2009, not as bad as I thought. I had heard rumours it took nearly 6 months.
So, imagine how surprised I was when Mum phoned to say that the record had arrived on 12th October. I can only guess that this was down to the copies of documents that I included with my application form.
- A copy of the first page of the Service/Pay book
- A copy of both the death certificates for my Grandparents
- The Next of Kin Disclosure form
- A cheque for £30
