By Peter A Bailey


Soft cover,106 pages, Contents pages but no index

This guide is the essential handbook for anyone researching ancestors who were connected to the East India Company Armies of Bengal, Bombay, and Madras.

It covers records from the armies’ origins until their assimilation into the British Army in 1860. Laid out in a clear and accessible manner, the book directs searchers to records on all available stages of a man’s career, whether officer or soldier, including sources which may provide details on his wife and children. For those researchers not fortunate enough to have access to the India Office Records at the British Library, the LDS film numbers are included.
