Having narrated a few events, the returns really help with the narration.? It is easy to mistake Royal Nld Fencibles from the 1st at a distance and also telling the difference between the 13th and 22nd at a distance can be challenging.? The guy from the 10th Royal Veterans, mistaken for a Royal Newf will always be miffed.?? A return of who is on the field helps although the audience usually just cares about good guys and bad guys and couldn't give a flying f---- about whether they are 41st or 49th Foot: 21st or 22nd Infantry.

In the U. S. Southern Division we use a couple of different versions of Morning reports depending upon who brings them. They are used to track the attendance mostly so that overall commanders know how many muskets they will have on the field.
There are different versions of original morning reports used for infantry and dragoons. At the last GT Ships Company turned in a form for naval personnel. I did not ask if it was based upon an original or not.
There are a number of sources for copies of originals, and some people buy orginals and produce their own. There are enlistment, muster, morning, promotions, quartermaster etc. out there.
As AAG for the Southern Division, I keep forms turned in to me at events as the archives for the division.
