Preston Army Pay Office

My Grandfather was born in Guernsey and adopted in 1905 by Mr & Mrs Wade who were in the army, possibly based at Guernsey at the time. A copy of his informal hand-written 'Adoption Note' was later stamped ARMY PAY OFFICE, PRESTON (- the stamp is dated but the date is unclear). Does anyone know where these records would be now and if it is possible to get copies of them?
Kind regards, :)
Robinetta

Hiya Robinetta,
the barracks at Preston is still operational so you could also try writing to the adjutant there. Nowadays its a logistics corp barracks, but the pay office is still operational and they may hold old records. Its Fulwood Barracks in Preston but I dont know full postal address. Hope this helps a little.
best wishes
Pat
