Jim Hastings Posted 25 October , 2013 Share Posted 25 October , 2013 Hi All, Have a query I hope some one on the Forum may be able to help me with or point me in the right direction in order to find the answer please: I am looking into a Regular solider of the 2nd Sussex who has two Army Numbers. He is L/7922 Cpl E J Brown DCM MM Croix De Guerre. On his MIC he also has the number L/12178. He has another MIC just with the number L/7922 and in the War Diary the entry for his MM award also has him down as L/7922 as does his DCM citation in the LG From Paul Nixon's site I have determined that he joined the Royal Sussex in late 1904, and I believe L/12178 is a late 1916/early 1917 number (TBC), so why the change of number??? Re-enlistment after Time Served? But if so would he not just have kept L/7922? From my research so far he served in 2nd Sussex for the entire war, but he may have been 1st or 2nd Sussex before it ... Any ideas anyone? Many thanks Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
