The Monthly Army List publishes the details of officers by regiments, showing their seniority within the regiment; it also publishes Staff appointments showing who is occupying which post at home and abroad, with the date of taking up the appointment. The Monthly Army List shows the situation at the time of publication, the rank of the officer and date of promotion to that rank.

The Quarterly Army List, however, is arranged differently; it shows the seniority in the Army, Royal Marines and Indian Army of every serving regular officer, names are listed by ranks and by seniority within those ranks. But it does more than that; it shows the step-by-step (gradation) promotion of the officer; the date of his birth, the date of first commission and regiment into which commissioned, and date of each promotion thereafter, including temporary and brevet rank. It also indicates any change in regiment (it was quite common for an officer to start out in one regiment and transfer to another at a later date) and if an officer was appointed adjutant in his regiment, that too is shown, though not which battalion. If the officer went on half-pay (a common occurrence in those far-off days), the date is given as is the date of return to full pay. And finally, it gives details of Staff and Extra Regimental Appointments held by the officer during his career up to the date of publication. All this is known as The Gradation List (sometimes irreverently referred to as ‘The Stud Book’) and it forms the greater part of the Quarterly Army List.
