Many people would access the Australian War Memorials Roll of Honour Database and Commemorative Roll. Just a note of warning that their databases do have errors in them (yes it is huge and it is not surprising) as there are people on these Rolls who are not entitled to be on there and the AWMs current policy on the matter is that will not delete them nor make a notation on the entries involved as the relatives of these people may get upset! In the words of relevant person in charge the AWM wants to be inclusive not exclusive. In my opinion as a researcher it is just plain stupidity as it lessens the integrity of their data but I cannot get the relevant people to change their mind. So as Monty Python would say there is a message and the message is beware.

Have a nice day people.
