Guest Linwood Posted 22 October , 2013 Share Posted 22 October , 2013 I have no background in military matters so I'm hoping someone on this forum can help. Pte Robert Woodfine was in the 14th Hussars in 1911 (found on the census) "awaiting discharge" at Fort Brockhurst, Alverstoke, Hampshire. By the time he died on 20th November 1914 at Ypres he was in the 20th Hussars. I would really like to know how long he would have signed up for originally. And, how would he end up in a different regiment? As an ex-soldier would he have been called up when war broke out? I have his CWGC record, and his medal card. I don't live in the UK so are there other resources online to obtain military records? Any other sources of information re pre-war Hussars that will help me educate myself? I realise these are rather basic questions, but any help or guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
