James Edward Riley (Service Number 28145) was KiA with the 7th Bn Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry on 02/04/1918.

SDGW on Ancestry and FindMyPast both record his former Corps as RFA with Service Number 108920.

I know he was formerly with the RFA but I have reason to be believe that this RFA number might a transcription error on both the above sites (I think they use the same source).

If anyone has the N&P disc version of SDGW or the DCLI hard copy of SDGW, I would be grateful if anyone would confirm or otherwise this RFA number, please.

Thanks for your help,

Regards

Russ

Thank for tying to help but I wasn't in need of his MIC.

I was hoping someone had the DCLI hard copy volume of SDGW to let me know whether his former RFA service number is the same as given in the digital versions (given that sometimes the digital versions are known to be prone to transcription errors).

Regards

Russ
