Guest Posted 20 February , 2018 Share Posted 20 February , 2018 Could any old Ubique advise- a small problem in that I cannot distinguish between the various different terms of engagement of the pre-war army. I have a local casualty where by fluke, the Silver War Badge for the man with the next enlistment number pins my man's enlistment date to on or about 26th August 1907. By 1911 Census my man,Arthur Warner (DOW 10th November 1914, France) was in India with 63 Battery RFA. He died with 43rd Brigade, whose war diary is informative. But would this have been 6 years with the Colours and then reserve? My man married OCT/NOV 1911 at home-my experience is that men tended to marry towards or at end of engagement. It's only a moot point but it would be nice to hazard an informed guess as to whether he was with the Colours or a recalled reservist. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
