Duplicate pages for Stanley Hull

These two soldiers are one and the same - both service numbers are listed on the medal index card.

Stanley Hull

I also suspect that it is the same man as this record on fmp, with a service number of 14341 (enlisted in 1909 months before 17th birthday but discharged quickly due to underage).

One of my correspondents found this in the local (Northamptonshire) newspapers in June 1916, which would seem to link all three records.

PROUD – All of us are proud of Sergeant
Stanley Hull, a Desborough boy, who has
gained the D.C.M. through gallant conduct
in the field, when he stuck to a maxim gun,
after every man about him had been killed
with the exception of one private. Some time
ago when it was understood he would
receive this honour a photograph of Stanley
Hull appeared in the “Leader”. But we felt
more proud of him when we heard that on
Monday he was presented with the medal by
H.M. the King. The brave young man is the
son of Mr and Mrs W. Hull, of Union Street
and his wife was from Leicester. He had
been called as a reservist in the Grenadier
Guards and is a fine specimen of manhood.
After being shot in the knee he is for the
present on military police duty in London. It
is expected that he will soon be home. His
many admiring friends will then want to see
the coveted medal.

Perhaps you will attach the relevant records if you agree with my assessment.

Thank you!
(I have a picture of him which I will upload once the LOTFWW record is updated)
