Royal Lancs Regt


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Trying to trace a John Robert Humble.(16490) in the Royal lancs.

seems he may of been discharged within 38days!

His records indicate he was discharged with ref;392(iiic)kk2B2.

Any idieas what this could be???

He enlisted on the 14.12.1914

King's Regulations 392iiic means "Not likely to become an efficient soldier (Recruit within three months of enlistment considered unfit for service)". Sounds like an overenthusiastic recruiter had passed a man that he really should have rejected.

Paragraph 392 of King's regulations, with all its many subdivisions, was the authorisation for discharging men from the army. It detailed all of the different reasons why a man would not make or be able to be a soldier. Para 392 [iii] was "not likely to become a efficient soldier" - which could cover anything from flat feet onwards.
