Harts Army List (1808 to 1945) Available Online
Thanks to a link (repeated from Chris Paton's blog) I saw in the Anglo-Celtic Connections blog, which I find is a good source of information about Canadian family history, I’ve been looking at the National Library of Scotland’s own page on the Internet Archive. On their page there are links to 201 issues of Harts Army List from 1808 to World War II. These lists contain all the officers in the army, a summary of their service record and often their date of birth, major decorations, and whether they were promoted from the ranks. You can view these online or download them (the list for January 1940 is huge - 107 megabytes).
