Whilst researching  Arthur L Wood  his medal roll card showed 3 service numbers  Is there anyone out there that could shed some light on them for me please.

A.S.C  T/158     (6/1 N. Mid DVL TRAIN)   DRIVER

R.A.S.C  T/4/244755

R.E  357934    Rank SPR

Date of entry  to theatre of war (1) France  5.3.15

DIS 392KR 22.4.19


Ideally looking for  when he was renumbered.

Also info on 6/1 N MID DVL TRAIN


Many Thanks

His service record has survived and shows he originally enlisted in the Territorial Force 20th February 1912 Handsworth Staffordshire Brigade ASC, i.e. North Midland Div.


Posted to the regular ASC and renumbered vide TF part II Orders No 37 dated 9.9. 1917.


Transferred to RE (46th Divl Signal Coy) 1. 1. 1918. Originally as a Pioneer becoming a Sapper after gaining trade qualifications.


Service record can be viewed on FMP here and presumably on Ancestry.


Initial information on the 46th (North Midland) Division, within which he apparently spent all his service can be found on the LLT here.

The War Diaries are here:

WO 95/2678 Divisional Signal Company 1915 Mar. - 1919 June  


WO 95/2682 Divisional Train (451, 452, 453, 454 Companies A.S.C.) 1915 Mar. - 1919 May  


They can be downloaded from TNA's website for about £3.50 each, or free from Ancestry if you have a sub - or your local library probably does.

I don't know how to put this Pete, but you will never complete your research.

The more facts you obtain, the more you will want to learn!:thumbsup:
