Is this the same man as in this thread Dan? If so, I'm not sure why you have started a new thread?

No it's not my Grandad s name Is George Henry Large. My Grandmothers husband was Robert Doughty. Sorry

Hi Dan,

 19712 was his only No. 19112 was a mistake, shown as amended on his Medal Index Card. (Ancestry have his 15* award roll under the No. 19122, FMP only show him as 19112).

 Near numbers indicate he enlisted in July 1915 in Norwich. ( 19710 Enl. - 7/7/1915.   19724 - 10/7/1915 ).

He went to France with the 9th Battalion on 23/12/1915 and was finally discharged to Class Z. Army Reserve on 12/3/1919.
