I am in the process of researching Private William Robert Tom Carter late 8th Gloucester Killed In action 1st Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers 15 Oct 1918

 

awarded the British war & Victory ..."36147 Pte W Carter Gloucester Regiment"

I have checked the medal roll and found him in the 8th Battalion Gloucester's, however it appears he (along with all those on the roll transferred to the 1st Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and was killed in Action as William Robert Tom Carter in 15th October 1918.

 

(His father was 118 Private Tom Carter (previously served pre-war with the 2nd Battalion), A Company, 6th East Kent’s (Buffs) who received a gunshot wound right elbow in the charge October 13/15 Near Hulluch against the Hohenzollern Redoubt (1 mi (1.6 km) north of Loos in northern France). enlisted 22 August 1914, discharged due to wounds April 1916, silver wound badge issued).

 

Question;

1) was the Gloucester's his parent regiment hence the medals named to him ? 

2) what actions were the  Inniskillings on the 15 Oct 1918.

3) any thoughts as to the transfer.
