  20. Francis Arundel Bell, 1906

    Grandfather's WW1 draft record (for the US - he moved) claims that he was a private in a 'territorial regiment' (doesn't specify which) in 1906. I can't find his record on this site. He was a Liverpudlian who lived in that general area until he moved to the Colonies. Are territorials different?
