RECORDS will go online tomorrow to help people research relatives who died fighting in the First World War.
Documents will be released tomorrow on 300,000 British and Commonwealth men, including those who served in the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry.
They will be available on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s website free of charge.
Some documents are from the 1920s and include information on the soldier, his unit, where his body was recovered and his burial plot.
