Any London Regiment enthusiasts out there?....Can anyone take an educated guess as to approxomately when a soldier with the number 636146 may have enlisted into the 20th Bn?

I'm guessing at February to March(ish) 1918 - am I way off the mark?

Thanks.

Dave

636090 Joseph Wheeler Eaton was posted to the 3/20th battalion on 29-9-1917 (Source WO363 on Ancestry, image 5661), so perhaps a few months earlier than your estimate.

Cheers Steve.

I notice that 636231 was issued in November 1917 also. So, taking the difference between the 3 numbers i'd guess that the second half of October 1917 for the issue of 636146 is as good an estimate as any? (I don't need to be exact).

Thanks for that.

That seems about right to me, too.

By way of comparision 616146 would be the equivalemt number from the 19th London Regiment number block (i.e 610000 to 629999). Men in the vicinity of that number seem to have enlisted in August 1917.
