This page is an attachment to Directories online and Military periodicals online

Search the British Library Archives and Manuscripts for a catalogue entry for Indian Army List ‎ (1889-1947) IOR/L/MIL/17/5/1-219, which includes a description of the frequency of publications at various periods and the editions which include War Services. For some years, a Supplement which contained war services of Indian Officers was published in January.

Indian Army Lists first appeared on the Digital Library of India website as pdf downloads in 2015. Most were recent additions from the Library of the United Service Institution of India, where the scanning quality of the digital files is good. However there are some older digital files where the scanning quality is very poor.

In January 2017 these DLI files were uploaded to the Internet Archive (Archive.org) and links are provided below. Books may be read online, or downloaded. The Digital Library of India is no longer operating.

Note: Most volumes have an Index of names at the back of the book.


See Directories online - East-India Register & Directory. Note that content may vary according to publication and date, particularly in the early years.


See Directories online - India List and India Office List for the publications Indian Army and Civil Service List 1861-1876 and India List Civil and Military 1877-1895.
