Hi,

My grandfarther was transfared from the east york's to the york's n lanc's at some point

during 1914-1918.

His reg't number was (34527) when he transfared to the yorks and lanc's, his name was Thomas Morris. Any help with what the numbering system would be for this

battalion, would be of great help? Many thank's.

Frank.

It might help if you posted his full name (or initials),people here might be able to help more if they know that too. Was 34527 his EYR number or the Y&LR number ?

Here you go Frank,

34527 is York and Lancaster Regiment Pvt Thomas Morris.

18325 is East Yorks Regiment Pvt Thomas Morris.

Cheers Roger.

Frank,

Upon a first quick check it appears that his service record as not survived the Blitz unless Thomas Morris was born in Liverpool.

Hi Frank,

Thanks for that, it confirms that I was looking at the wrong one(service record), had another look but cant find him, but then again I'm tired and maybe better Pals than me might find what I'm missing.

Only about a third of the 6 million or so records survived the blitz, but one thing I have noticed is that there where a bunch of guys transferred into the Y&L's together so it looks like they where replacements.

Good hunting in the future,we are always here to try and help.

Cheers Roger.
