I am attempting to find out more about my father's birthplace through his father, George Griffin. The only reference I have is on a wedding certificate which states George Griffin was a railway fitter, L/c no 56460, 103rd trbn. Usual residence Kensington, London, present station Edinburgh. The wedding took place in Edinburgh. What I am trying to find out is where the battalion was in July 1918. Were they still in Edinburgh or moved on. I keep hitting brick walls - no medals for george, no death tracable etc.

Any information greatly received. The page about training battalions was very useful - thanks.

Whilst George Griffin may have been attached to the 103rd Training Battalion there might have come a time when he was drafted elsewhere,though your research apparently shows that he has no medal entitlement,and thus,if we believe that, no draft to the Front.

What about a Voter's,or Absent Voter's, list for 1918,that may show where he was residing. It seems likely that he was still in Edinburgh.

You could also make sure that he has a service record available at Kew,you might be lucky to have his papers survive. They would be in the series on microfilm of WO363/G1107 or G1108.

Best wishes
