William Bishop was in 416 Agricultural Company, with HQ at Lancaster.

From his number he joined the Labour Corp in July 1917, possibly from a regimental agricultural company.

A number of numbers close to his were men who only served in the UK so if there is no medal card it is likely he was in this category.

As a matter of interest there is an entry for him in the Shropshire Absent Voters List - sorry but I seems to have mislaid my record of this AVL
