The official published lists are often one of the best ways to trace an officer's career in the British Services. All the monthly lists and the quarterly lists for 1940-1950 include officers of colonial, militia and territorial units.
The Army Lists were published monthly (1798-1940), quarterly (1879-1922 and 1940-1950) and half-yearly (1923-1950), as well as the ongoing modern Army List (1951-), for the regular army in this period.
If your ancestor does not appear in these lists it is very unlikely that he was an officer.
This list is fully transcribed with all abbreviations and terms clarified, therefore making it easily searchable.
