Military Service Appeals Tribunal Records Now On ScotlandsPeople

New Records release on ScotlandsPeople. Military Service Appeals Tribunal records relating to the Appeal cases of 5,820 men seeking exemption from military service between 1916 and 1918.

The records cover the Lothians & Peebles, Ross & Cromarty, Sutherland and Lewis areas of Scotland. All others were destroyed. 

The records are searchable by name, address, grounds, and occupation. Until Dec 3, the index is free to search and are only 10 credits to view. After Dec 3, the documents will be 20 credits to view.

Note that you will have to download each page individually. The documents are in jpeg format rather than pdf which would allow you to download the entire record in one go, regardless of number of pages.
