New Records at TheGenealogist

The following records have been added to our Diamond subscription

Mentioned in Dispatches

TheGenealogist has released over 81,000 records of people Mentioned in Dispatches in The First World War. With this collection you are able to find soldiers and army nurses that had come to the notice of their superior officers for an act of gallantry, or meritorious action, in the face of the enemy. The service person's name would have appeared in an official report, written by a superior officer and then sent on to the high command.

Soldiers who were mentioned in dispatches (MiD) did not receive a medal for their action, but nevertheless were entitled to receive a certificate and wear a decoration. These new records show the date the citation appeared in The London Gazette, along with a link to the London Gazette so you can read about your soldier. You can also see an image of the handwritten card record, and view the actual government publication of the time, where your ancestor will be listed.

(The image featured above shows the oak leaf decoration awarded to those who were mentioned in dispatches)

Military Court Records

Continuing the extensive addition of military records in 2014, TheGenealogist has now brought online the Home and Overseas General Court Martial records covering the years from 1879 to 1927. The new records take into account the hundreds of  First World War British and Commonwealth soldiers that were executed for cowardice and desertion.

In the records we find Private Thomas James Highgate who was the first British soldier to be shot for deserting his unit in the retreat from Mons in 1914. Military justice at the time saw the defendants receive a hasty and one-sided trial in line with emergency wartime military procedures. Death sentences had to be agreed by the Commander-in-Chief who was expected to take the current military situation into account. With the British Army in retreat after the first battle at Mons, senior officers made a decision to stamp out any thoughts of desertion and Private Highgate suffered the highest punishment.

A mass pardon of 306 British Empire soldiers executed for certain offences during The First World War received Royal Assent on 8 November 2006.
