Ancestry First World War Pension Claim Project

Scanning of First World War pension records that The Western Front Association saved from destruction is underway.
According to a post from the WFA "records comprise upwards of six million cards relating to soldiers' (and sailors and members of the RFC/RAF) pension claims relating to their service in the First World War."
This is a major project. The information will eventually be available to Ancestry subscribers (UK or World) and WFA members.
