Remembered Today:

Is there a clue here leading to a year/month of enlistment?


Recommended Posts

This man in my family seems to have been attached to the Middlesex Regiment ( as listed with this index card in Fold 3) I wonder if the numbers on the   card 100357 and II/M/398168 might help identify when Edmund signed up?

Many thanks and all good wishes,

Ursula

Not directly a clue in that card, I'm afraid (which isn't unusual on the medal cards) however 100357 is his service number and that can help.

 

#100322 was issued on 09 July 1918 when he was called up.
#100415 was issued no later than 24 Sep 1918.

If he’d been declared Insane a few years earlier then the effects register would have helped.

11/M/398168 is a regional pension claim reference for a disability so no good for enlistment I'm afraid

11 = London region (unfortunately further records are rarely available)

M = a military claim

398168 = claim number

:-) M

One of the abbreviations I have seen is for Cadet Instructor Cadre might he have been an instructor?

No, it means he was educated at the College of the Immaculate Conception (now called St Mary's College) in Trinidad. It's mentioned on the Roll of Honour that his entry came from.

They're both really helpful replies with information I just wouldn't have known without your help - many thanks,

Ursula
