Inniskilling Fusiliers - Help with Service Record please ?

Recommended Posts


Hello Forum members. 

30428 - Private Herbert Grainger

Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. 

BWM/VM - full entitlement. 

Non casualty. 

Can anyone please help with any details of this soldiers service please ?

Which Battalion he was in ?  

I only have his service number as shown on his Medal Index Card. 

I cannot see any Service/Pension records for him. 

He was not entitled to a Silver War Badge as far as I can tell. 

When did he enlist?

Which Division ?

Is it likely he saw action on the Somme 1/7/16 and if so where?

I have basic Ancestry but no access to other similar sites or any records of this Regiment. 

Any help appreciated. 

Thank you for reading my request.
