Edwin Walter Whiting 10th batt royal fusiliers

his service number is SPT/5348

The prefix SPTS relates to the 1st and 2nd Sportsman's Battalions, otherwise known as the 23rd and 24th (Service) Battalions. His medal index card shows entitlement to the British War and Victory Medals.

His MIC on ancestry shows only RF no battalion shown. It seems to show only Victory Medal Roll SPTS TP 104B3 Page 155.
