Remembered Today:

Why are MIC entries slightly different to British Regiments book?


Recommended Posts

Dear forum members can anybody tell me why a soldiers MIC regarding landing in a war zone is often one day out to the dates of the relevant battalion landing in the British Regiments book by E.A. James?

It can depend on the clerk whether they put date of departure or arrival. Especially if going across the channel a lot of ships moved overnight so men left on one day and arrived on the next - the 6th DLI, for example, moved overseas across the 19/20 April 1915 - some MIC's state the 19th and some state the 20th.
