See your other thread. Not unusual for a man to serve in more than one regiment- for example if wounded- after recovery he might be returned to any unit short of men. If commissioned he also would go to a different unit. Regards, Paul.

10TH London Regt for sure dating from 1910-14. the Imperial service badge dates before the 3rd/10th London battalion was raised so he appears to have been a pre-war territorial when the 10th had only one battalion.

Default many thanks

many thanks to you and the other posters,
I am helping my grandson piece together a small folder for his presentation for school, he is so made up that he has a relative who served during the First world war and we have some history.
I can reuse the material for my other grandchildren when they cover the first world war at school also.
I am also so proud he served and came home.
many thanks to you all
regards trevor
