New Life - Please add: William BAGSHAW, RWR - Wartime # not yet known

Born 1879, Matlock
Parents Thomas & Elizabeth
A pre-war Royal Warwickshire Regiment Regular (8y) and Reservist (4y) (1898-1910 #5485) who did Home Service with the RWR as a serjeant from 1914
His pre-war record is available from FMP: https://search.findmypast.co.uk/results/world-records/british-army-service-records?lastname=bagshaw&servicenumber=5485
[he actually originally attested with N&D (SF) Militia #6092 in 1898 but quickly transferred to RWR same year to serve alongside a brother in the same regiment, see below. See FMP: https://search.findmypast.co.uk/results/world-records/british-army-service-records?lastname=bagshaw&servicenumber=6092]
Unfortunately cannot find these via LOTFWW.
Married 1908: Ann Gregory
I also have a wartime photograph in uniform as a RWR serjeant wih wife & family and a newspaper clipping which reports his wartime service and cross-references him to a brother (who also served with RWR pre-war and who was KIA in 1914)
1939 living in Chapel en le Frith with his wife Ann
