The National Archives of Australia have placed World War One service records online. Some 376,000 records of Australian service personnel in World War One have been digitised and housed in a database which can be searched by name. The digitised records provide a glimpse of the people who volunteered for the war, recording their age, occupation and address at enlistment, and the entitlements they could expect as soldiers. For these invaluable primary records, visit the National Archives of Australia.
