Military History Research Centre (Aust.)

Getting Started


The Military History Research Centre website is a pay-as-you-go search engine that provides a considerable amount of information about individuals who have served in campaigns between 1850 (Crimea) and 1975 (Vietnam) wherever that information is publically available. We do not publish digitised documents and leave you to do the research; we do it for you. This section provides a brief explanation of the purpose and function of the essential navigation links, displayed on the menu bar, to the left, and the corporate links below. All links will be available wherever you may be in the MHRC website. They are the most commonly used and are designed to assist you to view the section of the website of greatest interest to the User/Researcher and to understand the rights and obligations of the User and the Military History Research Centre (MHRC).
