Roger,

His number is M2/098280 - the M2 means that he's a Driver

Unusual number, do you have a copy of his MIC? (here at the NA, may also be available on the ancestry site). The MIC may hold some information as to the unit which your grandfather served,

can you post a picture of him with the lorry. If we can identify the truck type that might put a little bit more light on to his service.

Sometimes the unit details are on the medal roll, found by cross referencing the RASC 101 reference on the card.

Ah yes, i found the other thread. The Lorry is a Halley (made in Glasgow) and one of 600 in use by the WD during WW1. That particular photo shows new learner drivers under the instruction of a bus driver (2nd from right standing).
