I take it you cannot read what is down on the sheet?

After his first six months service.

'First sheet destroyed' and 'Cases of drunkedness'

I suppose The first sheet was lost/destroyed and the facts were he had been reprimanded for drunkednness on the previous sheet.

Field punishment could be anything like peeling spuds, extra duties to his ordinary routine, like guard duty, I suppose.

I note the sheet states Field Punishment No:2

The Long Long Trail gives it as being Shackled by either the Provost Marshal or Regimentally.

Below the "Sheet Destroyed" Entry,he is recorded as "outstaying his leave pass,whilst on Active Service",probably the cause of his FP No:2

This is the first Conduct Sheet I have Found, and yes I couldnt read it or understand what it said etc,

Joseph Booker was my Great Uncle (mum's side) he was KIA on 22 September 1918 with 7th Btn Queens Own Royal West Kent Regiment.

Many Thanks for your help in understanding this document.

It is nice when you find a set of docs to go with your research. So many were destroyed in the bombings of 1940.

I had a similar set of papers with misdemeanors of all types, but luckily this chap survived the war.

A fascinating subject, though.

I was down the records office today looking up 7 men from 5th Lancers. Not one of them turned up.

Oh how I cursed the Luftwaffe!!

Booker is my late mother's maiden name and have found service records for her father and uncles who fought in WW1, But for my late father's side Miller's there is NO records covering my grandfather or great uncle so have no information about them which is very upsetting. :(

So I have been lucky on one side of the family but not on the other :rolleyes:
