An accessible, up to the minute guide for all those interested in the British Army or ancestors with an Army past.
The National Archives’ exceptional collection of military material includes the personal files of hundreds of thousands of First World War soldiers as well as Army nursing services, the WAAC, prisoners of war from the Second World War and Korea, and a wide variety of orders, decorations and medal rolls – from the Napoleonic Wars to the Falklands. This practical and accessible guide to records in the Archives and the British Library’s India Office covers over four centuries of Army life. Written by a military specialist and adviser on family history, it provides an insider’s knowledge of material newly released, soon to become available and recently deposited in regimental museums.

Army Records explores the documents surrounding key regiments, such as the Household Cavalry and the Royal Artillery, as well as the administrative backdrop to the service – pensions, casualty lists, deserters and the decisions of the Chelsea Invaliding Board. New online releases are charted, such as:
- Medal Index Cards
- World War II Unit Diary
- WAAC
- London Gazette
- Overseas records
- Updated sections of records of the Dominion Forces

Whether you are tracing an ancestor, auxiliary service, regiment or campaign, this is an invaluable guide to Britain’s military past.
