Royal Marines records now online

From the National Archives at Kew:

We've put more than 110,000 Royal Marine service registers online for you to search and download. If your relative joined the Marines between 1842 and 1936 you may be able to find them here. You can search by surname, first name and date of enlistment.

The registers can tell you the ships that your Marine served on, medals they were awarded, details of their conduct - or misconduct - and more.

To search the registers, visit www.documentsonline.com.
