Jon K Hall Posted 4 June , 2016 Share Posted 4 June , 2016 Hoping someone can shed some light on my Grandfather's time in WW1. He enlisted at Stockton-on Tees 03/031915 and his number would denote that he joined the 19th DLI, a Bantam battalion even though he was about 6ft tall. At some point he was a casualty (Gas) although he did manage to survive the war. His Silver Badge entry states that he served in the 19th, 2nd and 11th battalions and I am curious as to why he was moved around instead of remaining with the19th. Also, the DLI is prefixed with 'Kings Own' or is this an error. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
