World War 1 Pension Appeals

Chris Paton has a wonderful "guest post" on his blog Scottish GENES regarding pension appeals for WW1 soldiers who were disabled or killed (in this case the next of kin could make the application on behalf of the "estate"). Apparently very few of the applicants were actually granted money but there seems to be a wealth of information in the application records themselves. Well worth a look at Chris' guest post. A fascinating piece of historic information that few seem to be aware of (well, until Chris' post that is!)

Happy Searching!
