According to his M.I.C my grandfather's brother enlisted with the above Young Soldiers Battalion on 14th July 1917 when aged 17 years and 7 months. My underdstanding was that volunteers in the YS Battalions couldn't enlist until 18 years and 1 month old (although this was later to change to 18 yrs 6mths). As Redvers was born in December 1898 he was only 17years 7 months so did he lie about his age or were there different rules for enlisting in the YS Battalions that I am not aware of?

I wonder if somebody can explain to me what 'List C/954/1' means on Redvers' MIC?

This refers to the Silver War Badge roll

Russ just beat me to it, it is the reference number top left of the Silver War Badge roll as he so rightly says. Ralph.
