In the wider genealogy community I have heard numerous complaints about how much it now costs to have a WW2 war record put online

I agree and would have to pay $150 for my Father & his Brother WW2 records which is an exorbitant fee to charge - especially for pensioners & low income earners ($75 each)

Is there going to be any discounts offered to Pensioners as now these records are out of their reach & even for people who are not on a pension

Not everyone can get to Canberra to view them in person - it would be a 10 hour return trip for me which is out of the question

I can imagine how much this huge increase is putting people off requesting these records so the NAA thinking the cost would pay for putting them online won't be realized if no one can afford to get them any more

It is so sad that we now have to miss out on getting our relatives war records because of this excessive cost - My Dad died 3 years ago so I cannot ask him in person

I call on the NAA to review this decision to charge so much - please consider what effect this is having on people who need access
