Depends on the date. CSM Guy would only have been with them from around July 1918 onwards and that is assuming he wasn't in another LC company first.

Cannot prove this without his personal record but I suspect there may be an error in the London Gazette. Most of the men with numbers arround his are in PoW Companies and so I wonder whether he was in 37 PoW Company rather than 37 Company? Have you checked WO 363?

To be in the LC a man was unfit for front line service.
