KHayes Posted 28 December , 2011 Share Posted 28 December , 2011 I'm trying to track down my grandfather's (William Lord) WWI service records. I've found a couple of William Lord's in the pdf of WO 338 I downloaded but I can't make enough sense of the comments to know if the first one in particular might be the right man. In the column where they appear to list the unit details etc it looks like it says SP 7 A and then SR. I presume SR is special reserve? If so, I know he was in the TA for a time before the war, although he resigned in 1912. Would he have been called up in the special reserve? And can anyone make any sense of the other abbreviations for me? Secondly, the only other possibility is the last WM Lord and the long number is given as LO/184 but I can't find him in the lists of service papers held. Does that mean they're lost? Many thanks for any help anyone can give me Kate Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
