309374141_wynnsoldierseffects.JPG.5ffc704db6689b80e0edeaab50d7e3d7.JPGI am seeking a calculation of the enlistment date from the soldiers effects register 

for R C Wynn

He married in the April- June Qtr of 1915 

his widow was ineligible for a dependants pension (reason married after enlistment )

Hence the query

many thanks in advance

As an acting CSM he should have been paid £29 as a staff sgt scale (cut off was 3 August 1919 for accrual of the gratuity).

His service earlier number is given as 20955.

#20958 was issued 25 Feb 1915 - which raises an issue bases on the war gratuity.

The only way that this can be tied in is if his war gratuity was paid only as a substantive Sgt, rather than correctly under the acting rank.

Many thanks for your time and expertise Craig 

I think the date 25th Feb 1915  based on the date that the service number was issued is most likely to be correct

regarding the 4th June 1915 date calculated

It would seem a bit harsh if his widow was refused a pension if the couple married within just 4 weeks after he  enlisted 

I will try and obtain the exact date he married

now why did I now look up his earlier service number to see when it was issued

Charlie Thanks for the snippet it corresponds with the  CWGC entry   every little bit of info helps

Having interrogated the silver war badge rolls 

Roxby 20905 enlisted 23/2/15

Adie 20968 enlisted 3/3/15

Hold 20996 enlisted 4/3/15

which more or less confirms the enlistment date for Wynn as the 25/2/15 as previous given by your goodself

Thanks again Ray
