Rifle Brigade: Z and B Prefixes to Army Numbers

Recommended Posts

penstemon5

Can you tell me if I can find out who was given the number Z2436 in the Rifle Brigade.

I am writing biographies for all the men on our village WW1 memorial.

So far 13 boys have consecutive numbers in the Rifle Brigade, all joining on 3rd Sep 1914.

I do not have a name for Z2436 as the list on the Service Medal and Award Rolls card jumps from 2435 to 2438

Thank you

Penstemon

I've split this off from the original thread it was in so it will be more likely to get seen by other members.

Could it be 2436 Charles Frederick Whithman/ Whiteman 3rd Btn . To Comm 3/12/17. Corp 14 star, CSM BMW/Victory. MIC 14 Star returned  for amendment as he was Commissioned. Also shows MC.

Z/2436 was the number given to William Bearing. Enlisted 3/9/14, did not serve overseas, hence no entry on medal rolls. He appears on Silver War Badge Roll M/1676, discharged 17/7/15. His record appears in Ancestry, where these papers come from.

Who else are you looking at in the RB's see if I can help any.
