I trying to find some information about my great uncle, Sergeant George Francis Adams, 10th Royal Warwickshire Regiment, Service no. 8418. He later served with the Hampshire Regiment, service number 03168.

 

The only documents I have is his medal roll idex card and 2 medal roll entries. From his medal roll index card I know his theatre of war was France and the date of entry was 18/7/1915. I also have a postcard he sent which corroborates he was in the 10th Royal Warwicks and that he was in Weston-super-mare (I presume training) in March 1915.

 

I read in a newspaper article that he bacame a (civillian) chauffeur in 1916. I am trying to find out if he was discharged from the army before the end of WW1.

 

I have been unable to find his service record on ancestry.co.uk and findmypast.

 

Is there any other source that would tell my when and why he was discharged from the army?

Hi Minty_,

 

His 14/15Star Roll record says that he was discharged to the 'Z' Reserve on 11th March 1920. 

 

FMP have a hospital admission/discharge register record - link. It indicates that he was evacuated back to the UK, and might point towards a reason for the transfer between regiments. The 10 Royal Warwickshire Regiment first went overseas in July 1915. Their war diary is here at the National Archives, and here on Ancestry.

 

Regards

Chris
