verdun Posted 3 February , 2018 Share Posted 3 February , 2018 I am indebted to GWF members who have helped unravel at least part of the story of Percy Northcote (aka Henry Northcott) who served, initially, as 7263 Pte. P. E. Northcote, 1st Bn. Lincs. Regt. However, two more queries have arisen... 1. On examination of the 1914 Star Medal Rolls on 'Ancestry', I note that there is an identical service number (7263) issued to Pte. A Scaife, (also 1/Lincs) whose MIC shows that he, too, was a deserter. Can anyone explain this to me, please? 2. In the far-right hand column, "to be left Blank for use in War office", it states: "submitted in error auth 7/1/69". This appears in all instances where men on this page have had their name/details struck out. Can anyone explain this, also, please? Many thanks again if you can help!
