Recommended Posts

Researching 2 brothers in same regiment:

Charles Oldham was private 11727, 6 Btn South Lancs, first theatre 2B (gallipoli)

Brother David was private 16769 South Lancs

Can Battalion or period of joining be identified from number....some 5,000 different from brother?

Any help appreciated, Thanks Mebu
