His Labour Corps number of 18187 indicates that he became a member of the Corps on its formation in 1917.

He was in the 17th Battalion Yorks & Lancs which became 31 Company, Labour Corps

You will find his service record at the National Archives in WO 364 or on can look at it online at www.ancestry.co.uk

It appears that his discharge was due to ill health

I will send you a PM with the information thee is on the 17th Y & L and 31 Company up to October 1917 when he was evacuated back to the UK
