306567 would be an 8th (Irish) Bn of the King's (Liverpool Regiment) of the Territorial Force
The 1916 Territorial Force number block for the 8th Bn, Kings is 305001 - 330000

The Liverpool Irish (aka the 8th Bn KLR) wore a different cap badge (featuring an irish harp and shamrocks) to the standard 'Rocking Horse' . This photo is not of a man wearing the 8th King's badge

How about John Richard Dabbs KLR 306567 from 16 Olinda Street, New Ferry. His brother George Edward Dabbs was 205294 in RWF.

 

 

I have photos of these brothers, and I believe I can rule them out as possibilities.

Paul, can you tell us any more about them - eg where did your man live?

According to Absent Voters Samuel Jones at No 9 was 350053 in KLR. Later went to Royal Defence Corps 85058.

 

Is that 9, Sandfield Road, Higher Bebington?

Hi Paul

I think you're right to pursue the Jones line.

These are all 5 Dabbs who were in KLR.

OK.

The shorts suggest service in the Middle East, or just possibly in India.

Samuel Jones of Sandfield Road has a big collection of service papers on Ancestry.

 

I live in Higher Bebington - a 5 minute walk from Sandfield Road, frustratingly though I don't have a photo of him.

But please post the other photos of Higher Bebington men, I should be able to I.D. some of them!

Feel free to message me if you want (hover your mouse over my name and select "Message" I should be able to help you.

 

BillyH.
