The Royal Armoured Corps (RAC) Roll of Honour, which holds the details of all RAC soldiers who have died since 1939, has now been digitised and made available to all.
The Royal Armoured Corps Memorial Trust has been working with The Tank Museum to digitise the Roll of Honour, already on display in the Museum, to enable access to a wider audience and ensure the sacrifice of RAC soldiers is remembered.
The digitised Roll of Honour, which includes the details of over 13,000 soldiers, allows users to search by regiment and name for information on when and where a soldier died, as well as their service number. It includes over 150 regiments, which have been part of the Royal Armoured Corps during it’s 80 year history.
The Royal Armoured Corps Memorial Trust is delighted to be demonstrating its close association with The Tank Museum by having this new presence on The Tank Museum’s website.
Colonel John Woodward MBE, Chairman of the Trust says, “I welcome this digital collaboration as it emphasises the Museum’s and the Trust’s joint mission to honour the memory of all our crewmen who have trained and fought for our country in armoured vehicles over the years.”
By making our unique Roll Of Honour available online in this way, we can jointly remember the supreme sacrifice in the service of their country made by so many individual officers and soldiers of the RAC since its formation in 1939.
This online presence also provides an opportunity to promote the vital benevolence work still undertaken by the Trust for both serving and retired members of the RAC.
