UnConfirmed Rats - Can be identified in the Roll with an "X" this indicates that the record has not yet been reviewed. Generally all of the records are visible at NAA, but this process will take some time
Confirmed Rats - Can be identified in the Roll with a "Y" this indicates that the NAA record has been reviewed and or a unit diary entry indicates confirmation.
Undeterminable Records - We have introduced a 3rd status "NA" for records that NAA will not at present make available. This is mainly because these records are still held by the armed forces records departments. Often the men concerned had post war military careers.
Remember the Rats of Tobruk Motto - "No Surrender" and "What We Have - We Hold"
Let us all assist; in Keeping the FLAME Burning, in Memory of All Rats of Tobruk, who Served with the Allied Forces involved in the Siege of Tobruk.
