On FindMyPast, search for British Armed Forces And Overseas Deaths and Burials.
Or similar for Births and Baptisms, or Banns and Marriages.

Thank you very much, they were under 'British Armed' as you stated.

I'd used words incorporating 'Army' or 'Regimental' and the year start 1761 / end 1924 dates, but couldn't locate the Record Set.

Record Set (f m p)
British Armed Forces and Overseas Births and Baptisms

After searching the returns come as Gro Regimental Birth Indices (1761 To 1924)

Thank you, Mark
