Someone has asked: I'm looking to get a British Passport and can apply through my father who was born in a British Military Hospital in Germany in 1948 to British parents (his father was in the British Army as a Staff Sergeant). My father has the original Birth Certificate. The header reads: 'The Registration of Births, Deaths, and Marriages (Army) Act, 1879' and the 'Air Force (Application of Enactments) (No. 2) Order, 1918'. And below that it reads 'Birth occurring out of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'. A little background info to my situation: after returning to the UK after he was born, my father emigrated at a young age with his parents in the 1950's to Australia. Today my father holds an Australian Passport. I myself was born in Australia after 1983. My question is: Is my father considered a British Citizen even though he was born in a BMH outside of the UK? I am unable to find a definite answer on this. I'm having a great deal of trouble trying to ascertain whether I should apply for a Passport via my father or my grandfather (the latter involving more legwork chasing up paperwork etc as he has now passed).
