Men who left the army did so under King's Regulation 392. But there were many reasons for a soldier to be discharged, and the Regulation 392 had many causes categorised. If you have a soldier's discharge paper, by referring to this list you will be able to identify the reason for his discharge.

(i) References on enlistment being unsatisfactory

(B) Recruit passed by medical officer, but rejected by a recruiting

officer stationed away from the headquarters of the recruiting area, or

by approving officer

these were from the long long trail , it is the reason for discharge under kings regulations if you need to read more go here http://www.1914-1918.net/discharged.htm

Hello Gill,

Without actually knowing the context that the "Para 2(bi)" appeared in I cant be sure. I think you are looking at Silver War Badge entry, in which case it is a shortened version of Army Order 265 of 1917. Paragraph 2 covers the difference between Officers who get an "A" and Other Ranks who get a "B". the "i" (or1) means they served overseas and "ii" means home service only.

Thanks for the help.

Soldier's name was

Jack Waterworh 48861

3rd Battalion King's Liverpool Regiment.

I have a postcard to the family from Jack's brother Fred (R.A.M.C.) asking those at home if "Jack has got his discharge or is he still in Ireland"???
