Hi,

Looking at the 1st Battalion in India on the 1911 Census there is no Religion shown, but here is the percentage from place of birth.

Regards Mark

Other Ranks:

Ireland 812 (82.1%)

England 150 (15.2%)

Scotland 10 (1.0%)

India 13 (1.3%)

America 3 (0.3%)

I was thinking about this question earlier today - I know that Anglicans serving in English regiments had identity discs bearing the initials "C of E", but did this also apply to Anglicans in Irish, Welsh and Scottish units. I would have thought that Irish Anglicans carried "C of I" discs, but some of the information quoted in this thread suggests that they may have been issued with "C of E" discs?
