The Nominal Roll Book for the 37th Battery, Australian Field Artillery, from 1st July 1914 when the Battery's name was changed from the 14th Battery. As well as being a roll call, this ledger gives service information for the men, such as date of joining, details of promotions, and transfers into the AIF. The men are arranged in their Class order of 1894, 1895 etc. The 1894 Class were all the men who turned 18 in 1894 and under the Universal Service Scheme, were required to join a CMF Unit. On 1st July 1915 a new Roll Call was started to reflect the changes caused by transfers into the AIF. This time the men are arranged into their class order and there is also a separate list of men who voluntarily enlisted.
