War Office 97 (MG 13 WO97): List of Volumes and Microfilm Reel Numbers

Page 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

This series consists of service records of enlisted men, including attestation and discharge documents. Records were retained only for soldiers who were discharged to pension. Records were destroyed for those who took an early discharge and did not receive a pension, who took land in lieu of pension or who died in service. The records are arranged by regiment. If a soldier served in more than one regiment, his records are filed with those of the regiment with which he last served.

Before searching the microfilm, we recommend that you search the the Catalogue database provided by the National Archives (PRO) [www.catalogue.nationalarchives.gov.uk/default.asp]. Using the basic search screen, enter the person's name in Box 1 and WO in Box 3. If a reference is found, it will include a volume and page number, e.g., WO97/9/85. You can then check to see if we hold a copy of that volume.

If Library and Archives Canada does not hold the War Office 97 volumes of interest to you, you can borrow microfilm from the Family History Library, which holds copies of the complete series.
