Unfortunately the MIC is no help in this for an RFA men. For infantry men, the medal roll reference can be examined at Kew and should tell you which battalion they served with. However, the RFA rolls don't have their brigade listed. The only practical way you are going to track this man down is if his service papers still exist.

Thanks for your help but turns out he was the wrong man.....I have just found the right Alexander Roberts on the absent voters list. He was a rifleman in Rifle Brigade.

Best to post what details you have mollyolly and we'll have alook
