Remembered Today:

Service numbers

This question may have been asked on the Forum but I can't locate it.

My soldier was transferred from the HLI (No. 17745) to the Scottish Rifles (No. 39323).

Can a date of transfer from HLI to SR be determined from his numbers?

Thanks for your help

Dave

Hello Dave

Quite possibly, but I suggest that you add a second line to the title of your post:

HLI transferred to Scottish Rifles.

That way you are more likely to catch the attention of those who may be able to help.

Good luck!

Hi Dave

Have you checked on the Long, Long Trail, Infantry regiments? the 14th Service Bn of the HLI absorbed the 13th Bn the Cameronians(Scottish Rifles) on 2.3.1916. I'm no expert! Just interested in finding the answer!!
