War Services of British Army Officers 1945 

Including Earlier Service Details, Medals, Gazetted Honours and Awards, Mentions in Despatches.

This volume, republished from the official 1946  Half Yearly ‘Army List’, corrected and revised to the end of 1945, provides for the first time the most comprehensive service record of British Army Officers, for the period ending with the Second World War, that has appeared for general circulation. Hitherto this rare reference work was available only in a few specialist libraries. Each Officer's entry includes, where applicable: family name and forenames; date of birth; Regiment or Gradation List details including duration of any non-commissioned service; Great War and Inter-War Statements of Service, together with related Orders, Decorations, Medals and Mentions in Despatches (the latter includes multiple MIDs with ‘London Gazette’ dates); Inter-War and Second War appointments; Second War period Orders, Decorations, Medals and Mentions-in-Despatches, all identified together with their ‘London Gazette’ dates (importantly the latter again also includes multiple MIDs). A number of Foreign Awards are also listed.
Extending to almost 1100 pages, with a complete nominal index, the work not only includes Officers with Regular Army Commissions, but also Warrant Officers Class 1, Chaplains, the Nursing Service and a Gradation List of Regular Officers with short term commissions, all with various details. “For anyone interested in the British Army in the Second World War - or indeed the inter-war campaigns that preceded it - here is a well produced, ready made reference work of the highest order”

Note; Only those Officers who were serving at the time of publication  ( December 1945 ) are included in the lists
