        Thank you very much for adding this man, I hadn't spotted the '5th R B' stamp on Attestation Form along with the many other Regts & Service Nos. Are you sure 'R B' means Royal Berkshires of could it be Rifle Brigade, as transcribed by Ancestry. I have revisited his Record again on Ancestry & also Find My Past as I have membership to both. When he was discharged his Service No. was 37559, Suffolk Regt. I will add input to hisLifestory asap. Cynthia
