Title: Ordnance Office and War Office: Warrants of Royal Approval

This series comprises warrants of royal approval, mostly in bound volumes, originating in the Ordnance Office until about 1860, and the War Office, but brought together in the Ministry of Defence library. They relate to pay and promotions, patterns (of dress and equipment), arms, and augmentations (i.e. increases in regimental etc. numbers).

Date: 1837-1960

Entries in earlier volumes are numbered, but this practice appears to have been gradually dropped.
