Many thanks Doug, but are you sure about his service number?  Medal Card index & CWGC have it as 2871.

Cheers

Officers Died in the Great War is not as informative as SDGW. Officers at this time did not have service numbers.

The additional information is:

Arthur Frederick-Killed in Action.

Arthur Gerald is recorded as died,which could mean died at a later date from wounds recieved or from an illness or acccident.

Regards Doug.

Thank you, it helps because this man enlisted in the 1st 5th Battalion during the month when the upper age limit was raised in 1914, so when I find that date his serial number will help to provide a guide to enlistment dates in this battalion.

Thanks,

Tony.
