A service record box may be used to summarize information about an individual military unit's or ship's service history; it should generally be used in conjunction with the appropriate primary infobox. If needed, multiple boxes may be used to separate the service record for different periods; for example, a unit that fought in several wars may have separate boxes for each.

The box should be added using the {{Infobox service record}} template, as shown below:

{{Infobox service record
| is_ship =
| is_multi =
| label = 
| partof =
| codes =
| commanders =
| operations =
| victories =
| awards =
}}

Note: When using parameters, avoid the ambiguous abbreviation "N/A", and instead use "unknown" or "none". All subjective or qualitative judgements and numerical quantities or statistics must be cited to a reliable source (see WP:MILMOS#CITE).

  • is_shipoptional – "yes" if the box is being used inside a compound ship infobox.
  • is_multioptional – "yes" if multiple instances of the box are being used inside a single compound ship infobox.
  • labeloptional – the label to use for the box; this defaults to "Service record" if left blank.
  • partofoptional – the unit or formation of which the subject unit or ship was a part; multiple units may be listed with the corresponding dates.
  • codesoptional – the identification codes carried by the unit or ship; these should generally be labeled according to what the code indicates.
  • commandersoptional – the notable commanding officers for the period covered.
  • operationsoptional – the operations (such as battles, wars, campaigns, patrols, cruises, etc.) in which the subject unit or ship participated; these may be given as a list, or described in a more condensed form.
  • victoriesoptional – the victories or successes in the subject's service history. For units, this may be battles won; for submarines or merchant raiders, the ships and tonnage sunk; and so forth.
  • awardsoptional – the awards, decorations, or other honors received by the subject unit or ship.
