Service records are raised and maintained to assist in the effective management and administration of members both during and after their service.
Service records are classified into two categories:
Personal records include all those documents relating to a member’s routine administration, career management and training whilst health records include medical, dental and psychological records.
During the period November 2016 to June 2017, the National Archives of Australia (NAA) will be relocating records to the new National Archives Preservation Facility (NAPF). While this is happening there will be disruption to Defence's access to the NAA collection. Please see the Eulogy requests page for more information.
