atrf Posted 23 October , 2013 Share Posted 23 October , 2013 hello only been on here 24 hours i am digging into subjects i didnt expect i registered here to ask about my Grandfather on my father´s side and now find myself fascinated to discover more about others who i researched thoroughly in the past my Great Grandfather on my mothers side "Robert Langton Douglas" is known in specialist circles for a number of things, normally involving art, history (of siena) , the church and women but when war broke out he was by one account someone who was desparate to be part of it he was around 50 but lied about his age and died his hair and according to this biographer he signed up in October 14 with the Fourth PS Battalion of The Royal Fusiliers stationed at Ashtead in Surrey. after five weeks he was given a Commission in the Army Service Corps and this is seemingly where his war record starts "ASC Capt": how could i get confirmation that he was ever in the 4th PS Battalion he went to France according to the same war medals record on 28th Feb 1915 as a capt i am thinking there is more informationabout his movements wiith the Army Service Corps than with my Private in the Norfolk Regiment any ideas where i should start looking many thanks Andrew Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
