The same source shows recently available WW2 service files for 1,195 men born in England, 43 from Wales, 352 from Scotland, 107 from Ireland.
They are among 23,123 newly scanned records by the National Archives of Australia in the last month, the majority for men who served with Australian forces during the war.
BTW, if you don’t find them in other records recall that information given on military enlistment is often problematic. Claiming an overseas birth could be a useful subtefuge to hide an inconvenient truth.
