National Archives look up
« on: Monday 11 October 21 13:38 BST (UK) »
I have a reference taken from Family Search which points to the National Archives but I can't really find my way around their index.  Is there anyone with a bit more experience than me who could help with this please.

"Great Britain, War Office Registers, 1772-1935," database with images, FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:827G-922M : 9 September 2021), Jno B Verdi, 18 Jun 1810; United Kingdom, 18 Jun 1810, TNA WO 25. The National Archives of England, Kew; FHL microfilm .

The document is from the War Office (WO classification).

You need to do a search on WO 25, and probably search for "Verdi", too.
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

OR you could view it yourself at a few places other than TNA.

"To view these images do one of the following:
Access the site at a family history center.
Access the site at an affiliate library.
You may be able to view this image by visiting one of our partner's sites or the legal record custodian (fees may apply)."

In this case: (WO 25)
