Hello - The above man is on his MIC with the Reg No. 1601 and the rank Gunner.

If he was in a cavalry/yeomanry regiment - why does he have

the rank of Gunner?

He subsequently is shown as a 2nd Lieut. South Staffordshire Regt.


Thank you

Old Jack

Don't believe everything you read in the transcriptions!

Whoever transcribed the card at the NA couldn't read the handwriting. It actually says "Pte".


By the way, whoever transcribed the card at Ancestry couldn't read the first name and wrote "Deno??" <_<
