Can anyone tell me the likely reason for John transferring from the Cameron Highlanders to the Labour Corps... What exactly was the Labour Corps? Would he have chosen to go or was he pushed? JIM

Post 1917 revolution a lot of them were moved to the Labour Corps from Infantry units as they were deemed to be of doubtful reliability. And echoing Chris's comment the medically downgraded made up a fair amount of the men.
