Recommended Posts

I’ve trawled through the missing A’s and propose to include the bold entries. I’ve included the obsolete ones so that they appear in the thread, and in case they are of interest to anyone;

Army Form A 4 Authority for Holding a District Court Martial (replaced by A 47 in 1883)

Army Form A6 Warrant Appointing Dep. Judge Advocate G.C. (replaced by A A48 in 1883)

Army Form A 8 Order for Re-assembly of a court martial (1883)

Army Form A 11 Monthly Return of Admissions to Hospitals (1907)

A 20 Corps Daily Strength (found reference 1883)

A 21 Casualty Report (reference 1888)

A 23 Nominal Roll of Civilian Servants for whom Medical Attendance is Claimed (reference 1898)

A 24 Certified List of Secret Documents in Custody of Officer (1907)

A 25 Nothing Found

A 26 Nothing Found

A 29 Sick. Wounded, and Deaths (Field Service: Weekly Return) (1907)

A 32 Annual return of sick, wounded, and deaths among the troops serving in the District (1883 and 1925 reference to use up to 1914)

A 37 Horses (or Mules) Sick and Lame: Command Monthly Return (revised 1909)

A 38. District Veterinary Officers' Annual Statistical Return (reference 1894)

A 39. Veterinary Corps Marching Reports (reference 1894)

A 40 Wounds and Injuries in Action : Classified Return (cancelled in 1884)

A 40 Form of Complaint in Prosecutions (Scotland) – (approved in 1885)

A 41 Proceedings of a summary court-martial (ref 1883)

A 42 Certified Copy of Register 1st January, 1st July (ref 1883)

A 43 Proceedings of a Medical Board (ref 1915)

A 44 Certified Copy of Deaths of Officers, Soldiers and their Families on the Establishment of the Corps (ref 1883)

Some others that I propose to add;

G 923 Mechanical Transport Defective Engine Report (approved in 1909)

C 349 Prisons, Military ; Admission Report

B 165 Veterinary History Sheet

B 196 Qualification Sheet – Electrician (Ordinary) (revised 1909)

The A 40 example, and other examples that Croonaert has pointed out, is why I tried it include the date range for forms. As this is a forum for Great War interest, I have excluded forms that are clearly much later vintage, for example, Army Form G 875A Report on Examination of O.M.L. … -Inch Mortar (adapted) (revised Apr 1944).

I propose that the known dates of the imprint should be included in your list.

I have the definitive list that includes changes up to AO Oct 1916. It is over 200 pages I can't scan the whole thing. But can do request pages. Although can't do much of anything at moment my phone line is down since Monday & nobody seems interested in fixing it. Just struggling with a slow weak 3G.

There are 23 sub-titles for Army Form L 1398. This series lists the quantity and types of Army Books and Forms carried in the field by various units. I have only ever found one, Army Form L 1398-23, for Army Service Corps units on Line of Communication.

Thanks, Chris. I will look into adding the dates.

Was L 3198 in the form of a book, containing all 23 pieces? Either way in 1911, it appears to have consisted of 76 pages - http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=Qhi4tgAACAAJ&dq=%22Tables+of+Regulations,+Army+Books+and+Forms%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=1wNzUrmuMeaJ0AWOjoHwAQ&ved=0CDEQ6AEwAA

This 1914 version gives a breakdown of some of the units - http://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Tables_of_Regulations_Army_Books_and_For.html?id=ykgskgAACAAJ&redir_esc=y

AF L 1398-11 seems to have been for an infantry battalion, in 1938 at least - http://www.robvanmeel.nl/?q=content/tables-regulations-army-books-and-forms-and-stationary-taken-field-infantry-battalion-9-p

Perhaps fv1620 has the full list?

Army Form L 1398-23, was an about crown octavo sized pamphlet with about five pages of text, specific to an ASC unit in the field. The version that I found had an imprint date of 11/14.

I have no idea of the title of Army Form O 1687, but have included an image of it. I have also included a fuller title for Army Form O 1800 so that the difference between it and Army Form W 3504 is more obvious.

O 1640 Report of Transfer of Officers’ or Troop Horses and Mules (10/17)

O 1680 Debit Voucher (10/14)

Looks like I stand no chance of a phone line again until at least Thursday. So I'll see if I can upload this from the phone.

Trying again.

Thanks again, Chris Henschke and David Porter for the latest additions. I've added them in.

We've got a couple of O-1800 versions, but I think I've seen different wordings on this form in the service files so I may leave it at "Application for Issue of Railway Voucher".

N 1510 is currently entered as both "Detachment Pay Sheet" and "Pay and Mess Form". They may even be the same thing?

fv1620 - Thanks for the L's - Chris will be delighted to get his L 1398s. I hope it wasn't raining on the way to the wifi hotspot!

We're up to 700 Army Forms now (plus another 70 from the scans above which I will add later). It's a bit daunting that we previously had 6 'L' forms, and we've just been given 80 of them. I would be interested (and scared) to know how many of the 200 pages are lists of Army Forms, at about 40 per page).

Grumpy - Once we get as far as we can with this list, it would be good to denote (or even link to) those forms on the main list for which there is an example available?

fv1620,

Thanks for attaching the scans - a great addition. Can you please tell me the name and date of the reference? Is it an Army Order?

And at last...there really was an Army Form L 1375!!

Additions to P Forms

P 780 receipt for rations (Supplies Ch VII, para. 26 Standing Orders 1 Australian Division 1917)

P 1922 Contractor’s Bill, G.S. and Bill for Stores purchased locally (Short) (9/17) (AFL 1398-23 11/14)

P 1940 payment recovery for telegrams (mentioned in Instructions for Colonial Contingents in Egypt, 1914)

P 1964 Confidential List of Bills passed for Payment (AFL 1398-23 11/14)

Chris curiously there's no WO Registry File No.

"Classified List and Alphabetical Index of Army Forms and Books (Including alterations notified in AO October 1916."

The imprint shows December 1916

Front cover says Issued with AO dated 1st January 1917.

If the weather improves I'll go up the road to the hot spot & post a picture of the cover.

In the meantime has anyone got a reasonable resolution scan of L 1372 please?

Clive

I have just found a reference for three more forms in SS 393 Censorship Orders and Regulations for Troops in the Field, dated September 1917.

'Other field service post cards e.g. (Army Form A.2042A, 2042B and 2042C) provided they are used only for the purposes for which they are issued.'

I remember seeing one in Maltese.

Field Service Post Cards A 2042A and A 2042B seem to have been variations of "Advice of Admission to Hospital". I haven't quite found the distinction yet. A 2042C seems to have been a re-direction postcard, advising the Army Postal Service of a change of address.

With regard to the W's, i'll aim to get them updated in the next day or two. I'm still struggling to find a reference to the FSR Pt II 1930 forms in the Great War. They were clearly in use in WW2, but why bring in P.O.W. forms in the interwar years? A bit of a puzzle.
