Since I been in this forum back in 2009 I found little information about my grandad Joseph Hughan who used to serve as a civi around 1970 in Hobart Barracks,fixing helicopters.I have been intouch with several offices now and believe the information I got should be enough to get his service records.I have a few questions thou unanswered as I am lost in bureaucracy right now.It gives me two different options to apply for his records.One is the Freedom of Information Act and the other is immediate next of kin.The question that noone, not even the embassy seems to be able to answer me is, is a grandaughter classed as an immediate next of kin?It seems all kinda crazy to me cos right now I get the feeling that granchildren got no rights!I was hoping that someone may be able to answer me that question!Hoping for some replies.
Merry christmas to u all!

Even under the FOI Act you would need to prove a relationship. If You can prove you are a surviving direct relation, by virtue of your parents being deceased you have a right to the information. You would however need proof of relationship by way of birth/marrage/death certificates, and this sometimes proves problematic!
