SteveMarsdin Posted 10 November , 2013 Share Posted 10 November , 2013 Good evening, Can any York and Lancaster experts help me Frank William Roberts was one of my great-grandfathers. I have his service record and MIC from Ancestry, both of which indicate service in the 2nd battalion of the York and :Lancaster regiment. His MIC shows entry into France 9 September 1914, as per 2nd Battalion. This seems to contradict with other information in the service record (he served in the Mediterranean theatre from 1916 and caught malaria) and family history (he learnt to cook curries when he was in india pre-war) which both suggest service in 1st battalion. Could he have switched between battalions during his service ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
