    Did the person who made these suggestions give their sources? I have to admit that it looks to me as if they might have confused data for two people... however, my main expertise lies among the...

    Do you mean the numbers before 1(a), Barbara? I think they are old-style service numbers. Before service numbers were standardized, each regiment had its own numbering system and men who moved...

    One of my ggfathers was an ag lab, which confused me as he lived in a fairly large town. It turned out that he was working for the local asylum/poor house, who had their own dairy herd and fields....

    He's a bit long in the tooth for a WW1 record, isn't he?
