Charles Bush

I am researching the following soldier:

Name: BUSH

Initials: C

Nationality: United Kingdom

Rank: Lance Serjeant

Regiment/Service: East Lancashire Regiment

Unit Text: 7th Bn.

Date of Death: 03/10/1915

Service No: 12816

Grave/Memorial Reference: II. H. 30.

I have found his MIC but there is an entry I haven't seen before (you'll have gathered I'm somewhat of a novice!)

After the Victory & British entries there is a entry for Star with the preceding '15' and then 'Supp'

Could anybody let me know what this means? Also if anyone can tell me any other info such as where he enlisted and how he died I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance

Simon

I have had a look at his card, and my guess the "Supp" means supplementry as in the reference number that follows,ie not in the main records but "added" on. I think ! Ralph.

It refers to the Medal Roll Page which as rjaydee says means a supplementary page extra to the original pages,containing extra recipients,not unusual,you may have two or three "supplementary" rolls to a regiment
