enlisted 31/5/1915

discharged 17/3/1917 cause of discharge - chronic bronchitis pore? 392 XVI RR (This refers to King's Regulations, Paragraph 392, section XVI - No longer physically fit for service)

action taken - list c/472 (I suspect that he was entitle to the Silver War Badge and refers to Roll Page for Honourable Discharge, he may not have served overseas and this may have been his only award card)

can anyone help in deciphering the above please?
