Hi
some of the digitised records at Kew National Archives are available free online whilst the buildings are closed to the public due to the C Virus. All sorts of interesting documents are available for downloading free, including military. You can download up to 10 records at a time, check the guidelines in the attached document.
Youíll need to register for free if you havenít done so already then go to the Discovery section.

The link is below.
Happy hunting, keep safe and well.

Thanks for the tip evansfam, I'm not sure if the libraries here in NI are doing the same (They are usually 3 to 4 weeks behind the rest of the UK for everything!!!
It would be very helpful if they are as I have my DNA with both Ancestry and My Heritage but i only pay a subscription to Heritage as they were offering a very good deal at the time I did my DNA. Ancestry sends me lots of Contacts / Discoveries but I can't access them as I don't pay the subs to them (Very annoying) Anyway I'll try my library and if are making the same offer that will be a huge bonus for me. Thanks once again keep well
Gareth
