Roger Nixon, a military history researcher, has released an index of 245,000 soldiers who were serving in the British Army worldwide in 1861. The material has been collected using the April – June quarter Paylists which are held at The National Archive.

This surely must have been a labour of love which took many hours so it would be criminal if it was not widely used. Many thanks to Roger Nixon for allow online access to such useful data.
