The recent upsurge in Australia's military history has seen the online availability of many military records on the Australian War Memorial website and also the availability of a soldier's Personal Service Record on the National Archives site.
However, many people have difficulty in wading through military jargon and need a more readable source of what their relatives battalion or unit was doing during the Great War of 1914-1918. This is where the unit histories become a most valuable resource tool. A point-by-point check list of 'The Ideal Unit History' which may be useful to genealogists and others has therefore been included.
Also included are publication details of the many published histories of battalions, light horse regiments and other units of the 1st Australian Imperial Force which served with distinction in theatres such as Gallipoli, France, Belgium, Egypt and Palestine.
