Attestation Records

We hold the attestation record index for the KSLI (Kings Shropshire Light Infantry) between 1915 and 1945 in a searchable database. The ‘all fields’ search uses a ‘sounds like’ approach, so you will often find the list is longer than expected, but will recognise similar spelt names. You can use the advanced search to perform a narrower search on family names and places.

Please help us improve the record. If you find records you can add detail to, please consider becoming a virtual volunteer.

We found 4382 person records.
