Hi there,

His MIC shows he went to France 20/11/1915 as Pioneer 29405 RE. Then 2nd Lt and then Lt RGA.

At the time his medal/s were claimed in Jan 1919, he seems to have been with 3rd Mountain Artillery Battery.

Address - Haslemere, Berners Rd, Felixstowe

His MIC indicates he served with 3rd Mountain Artillery Brigade, RGA (not 3rd Mountain Artillery Battery).
