Service record

#1
Hi guys

I'm trying to get hold of my service record but not having much luck so far,
I served with the Royal Irish Regiment (home service part time) from 94-97,
the problem i'm having is that a couple of years ago RIR Hq, Palace Barracks in Ballymena Northern Ireland closed down after the regiment was disbanded and i've been going round in circles trying to find where my records might be kept now and who i should contact,

can anybody help, please

Steve

Here mate phone up this number at Soldier Wing Glasgow:

Disclosures: 0845 600 9663

its called a Subject Access Request you are entitled by law under the Data Protection Act it will normally take up to 40 days to provide.

They are quite good I have done it myself recently but, they are understaffed and busy.
