How to calculate length of service from effects register

Hi, I have noticed that some people are doing clever stuff with the Register of Effects, by using the date of death and total payments due to work out when the soldier joined up.  There are a number of cases where this would be very useful information - could anyone explain the formula to me please?

 

Many thanks, John

Take a look at my website and calculator (see the link in my signature). Any questions please post and I'll see what I can do to help.

 

Its easier to use the calculator than do it manually - I often have to puzzle over some of them (I do most manually) !
