Royal Military Academy (RMA) Woolwich Cadet Register Collection
Names and attendance dates of the earliest cadets, that is from 1741, are sadly not held in registers in the collection. The first volume in existence contains pages at the beginning apparently written retrospectively; the information is probably incomplete. The earliest dates are in the 1780s. It continues more accurately between 1801 and the late 1820s. Volumes two to four are not registers, but bound monthly muster rolls recording the cadets present each month. As a result, a name will be recorded many times until the cadet graduates. Remaining volumes five to ten are regular cadet registers.
