Help Understanding Pension Cards

The birth registers which Museumtom has given certainly show that George was in barracks Cahir for the birth of first child August 1912 and in India for second-Johanna?-in August 1913.

 

Were his parents Thomas and Amelia?

Not least these cards are very interesting in that he appears to have yet another RE number A/1845452

This number is particularly interesting in that it is so long and seems to me to be likely indicative of post-war service..


Hi,

 

A very interesting thread. Members have shared much knowledge with you.

 

As your grandfather enlisted in 1910 for 12 years service (7 years colour service and 5 years reserve service) as a regular soldier he was likely still on the reserve when the 7 digit army service number sequence was introduced in 1921. UK MOD will likely still hold some papers for him. The enquiry costs £30.

 

Good Luck

 

Steve

For us colour-blind men, which one would that be then Tom?

This is great information. He lived at no. 12 Grange Terrace not 11. His parents were Thomas Guest and Elizabeth Young, but she died in 1891 and Thomas Guest remarried to Amelia Goode.

Thank you for this information, I will look up the MOD and download a form to get his records. I hope its not that complicated to fill in.

Oops....here is No 12. Also a brown door. The house next door, No 13, (blue door), lived James Wall who died in WW1 serving with the Merchant Navy.
