You specify its a overseas marriage and the form adjusts for the ref given in the GRO index.

Can anyone advise me please as I am not too sure what info to put in when ordering an overseas marriage certificate.
It is an Army wedding in Aden and I can fill in names and year.
When it asks for GRO Index, do I just put in the page number that I have, or would I also add, Army and country Aden in the box ?
I have always ordered British ones before where you just add volume and page number.
