British First War Pension Records

The Western Front Association have posted an update to last year's announcement that they've acquired a collection of 6.5 million British WW1 pension cards:

Other Ranks Died (this contains nearly one million individual records)
Widows and Dependents of Other Ranks Died (in excess of one million records)
Other Ranks Survived: Requested/Rejected/Receiving Pension (over 2.5 million records)
Officers survived and Officers' Widows (approximately 150,000 records)
Merchant Naval Cards (about 5,000 records)
See an explanation and examples at

Thanks to Glenn Wright for the tip.
