The JAG's office also compiled registers of both
general and field courts martial that provide information about
each defendant's name, rank, regiment and place of trial, as well
as the charge, finding and sentence passed against him. These can
be found in WO 90 (for general courts martial abroad), WO 92 (for
general courts martial at home) and WO 213 (for field general courts
martial abroad). A register of district courts martial, containing
similar information but for lesser offences, is located in WO 86.
Records of regimental courts martial are altogether harder to
find, as they were not sent to the JAG's office. Some information
might be found in either war diaries (WO 95) or regimental records.
The only other significant records held at The National Archives - in WO 93 - are
the registers for Australian and Canadian soldiers tried by courts
For further information on such subjects as death sentences passed,
British army mutineers (of which there were more than 2,000 during
the First World War) and officers court martialled by the British
army, there are a number of important books, all of which are
held in The National Archives library. Also, see Courts martial and desertion in the British Army.
