I think I'm becoming a bore, here. Sorry!

But are there any records on-line which will give an indication of when a soldier signed up?

I'm not aware of a specific online source - but do you have a death certificate for the person? If his age is 18/19/20 you might make an educated guess. No use if he's much older though.

Have you searched documents online for a medal card? Is the person shown as receiving the 1914 Star, or the 1914/15 Star which would mean he was in the army then.

Hi Sharron

During my research on a soldier who was in the Durham Light Infantry, I came across a gentleman who is writing a book about the DLI. Rather than me giving his email address to the world, if you could post any details you have about your soldier I will ask him if he can help you.
