Wednesday 6th November 2002

The National Archives of Australia today unveiled the long-awaited
Nominal Roll
of more than a million men and women who served during World War II

The launch was the culmination of a massive effort to transfer key details
from sixty-year-old, often hand-written paper records into an electronic format

The database contains basic biographical details of each person
such as their full name, date of birth, enlistment and discharge dates,
rank, any gallantry awards and if he or she was a prisoner

It is accessible on the internet at ... http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/
