Description

This DVD-ROM comprises 40,000 + pages containing every gazetted British gallantry award, Order, Medal, or Decoration that was awarded for service during the Great War, complete with citations were applicable. Digitised, indexed and fully searchable, both dependable and straightforward to use, with printable results.

Includes all British awards from the Victoria Cross to the Mentioned in Despatches that were announced and published in The London Gazettes in total a conservative estimate of 370,000 British awards are contained on this disk, additionally 1000's of appointments, transfers, promotions and foreign decorations and medals, with permissions to wear can also be discovered.It is based on an original run of the Gazettes that contained military information only. These volumes were originally housed in the former library at Chelsea Barracks. The ‘military' element including the Admiralty and Royal Air Force contains lists of appointments, transfers, promotions (mainly to and within officer ranks), awards and citations of many of the senior awards. Foreign awards show the grade of that award e.g. First Class, Fourth Class etc.

Often the information given amplifies the mere catalogue in Army, Navy and Air Force lists where only initials and not forenames are shown. A significant benefit is the ability to, in most cases, distinguish between the various people sharing a common surname. A massive advantage of using this particular set of Gazettes is that skilful editing has resulted in most non-relevant sections being discarded.

Whereas it is possible to search the Gazettes elsewhere, those searches will be muddied by hits on entries utterly unrelated to military matters or honours and awards. The London Gazettes for the Great War are an extensive resource for the military historian and geneologist.

Each of the 40,560 pages contained in this set of the War Gazettes has been scanned and, using the latest technology in optical character recognition, a master index has been created. This index can be searched using the supplied version of Adobe Reader.

RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS A PC running Windows 7, 8, 10 or Vista with 4GB RAM installed and a 4X speed DVD drive. Hard drive space of 4.5GB is required for storage of the Gazettes. Please note this DVD-ROM is NOT Mac OS or Linux compatible.
