Remembered Today:

Robert Pye 2917 and 40506 Lincolnshire regiment

Barwell boy

Recommended Posts

Good morning all,


I am researching my brother in law's grandfather's service in WW1. I have managed to trace him to the Lincolnshire regiment and have his medal card index details which show him as serving with both the 1st and 2nd Lincolns. However, I haven't been able to determine the disparity between his service numbers. Can anyone shed any light?


Many thanks, in anticipation.
