A typical compiled service record consists of a jacket-envelope for each soldier with card abstracts of entries found in original muster rolls and regimental return. There may also be originals of any papers relating solely to the individual soldier, such as enlistment papers, discharge papers, requests for leaves of absence and furloughs, accounts of payment and clothing issued, and court-martial orders.
