Forces War Records Magazine

The first issue of this British online magazine is out from the folks at Forces War Records  (Alexa rank 119,758), a sister site of Forces Reunited (Alexa rank 263,316) and part of Clever Digit Media Ltd.
This is an entirely new-to-me organisation with another string to its bow being British Genealogy (Alexa rank 472,465) which the company describes as a forum leading the field in its technology and membership base.
The magazine cover story is a Genealogical Boot Camp for getting started researching military ancestors. Solid straightforward advice.
The lead "historic feature" is on Britain's Secret (WW2) Army: the Auxiliary Units and the Last Line of Defence. It's a useful description of a guerrilla-type organisation which I learnt a bit about when Time Team explored Shooters Hill in South London.
A Happening Now section includes news on military records, a what's on compilation and happenings from the Great War day-by-day 100 years ago.
The magazine, with about 28 pages of content, is free so it costs nothing but your time to check it out, and you'll certainly learn about the military resources of Forces War Records.
