War Office: Officers' Services, First World War, personal files (alphabetical)
This series contains records and correspondence for officers with temporary commissions and Territorial Army officers who served in the First World War.
WO 374 is made up of two registered files series: the 'vowel' series which was introduced to cope with the large number of temporary commissions and the 9 series, so-called after the numerical prefix within the War Office file series which was the allocated code for the Territorial Force. The two series of files were later combined by the Ministry of Defence into a single alphabetically arranged series.
Please note that the series list is not in strict alphabetical surname order, and also that a few strays appear at the very end.
