Life in the British Army 1760-1913

Until 1660 there was no regular army in England and Wales – instead individual regiments were raised to deal with a specific need as it arose. The first regular army was created after the English Civil War in 1642. Because of England’s regular involvement in war from the medieval period to the present day, it is very likely that many families will have had some association with the army at some point in their history. This makes these records a particularly valuable source for tracing your ancestors. for more click here
