Catalogue description War Office and predecessors: Indexes to Out-letters
|Title:||War Office and predecessors: Indexes to Out-letters|
These are for the most part journals and indexes of letters in the letter books of the Secretary-at-War and of War Office departments. There are also journals with an index of the Board of General Officers, 1808 to 1816; an index of the Agent General of Militia, 1803 to 1804; and an entry book of memoranda and precedents relating to the War Office establishment in 1782. Many of the letter books to which these indexes refer cannot be identified and probably do not exist.
The series includes material which would otherwise be found amongst the Records of the Board of General Officers and records relating to soldiers' clothing (WO).
