2nd battalion welsh regiment

Recommended Posts

I am researching  John Herbert

2nd battalion WR

sent to France 13th Sept 1914.so presumably he was a territorial or had previous  service 

discharged 29-09-1916 no longer physically fit for service

awarded silver war badge number B137364.

I cannot find his service papers and would like to know why he was discharged para 392 XVI,

any help would be good :thumbsup:

Discharge under para 392 xvi is "no longer physically fit for active service".

Hi,

 

2 hours ago, little bob said:

Mobilised 10/4/1914

 

That's what his SWB record does show, but that's 4 months before the outbreak of the conflict.

 

Regards

Chris

MIC shows that John landed in France 13th September 1914. Biffo does say that in post 1.
