Remembered Today:

Abbreviations in court martial records


Recommended Posts

I've just taken advantage of the 7 day free subscription offer on Fold3 to look at the East Riding Yeomanry entries in the Court Martials Register. Nothing very major - mainly AWOL, asleep on guard duty (not in a combat zone), the odd case of theft, one drunk etc. None the less interesting and helps build an overall picture of the men in the regiment. A couple of questions someone may be able to help me with.....


In the Miscellaneous Military Offences column there are abbreviations such as S.23 and S.40. I presume these are references to Field Service Regulations?


Assuming that witnesses were called and transcripts of court martials made, have the actual proceeedings (as opposed to the outcomes) also been preserved at all?


many thanks
