Ernest Hodgkiss Royal Marines Light Infantry & Army Labour Corps
Ernest Hodgkiss was born in Aston Birmingham in June 1900, he was conscripted into the RMLI in June 1918, but as he was still in training when the war ended he was released from service. However, in 1919 he enlisted in the Army Labour Corps, and served in Flanders retrieving bodies and then helping to rebury them in what are now the Commonwealth War Graves Commissions cemeterys

A new seeding document has been created for Ernest Hodgkiss using his army service records https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7663329 Please add any personal records records in the usual way. If you have a subscription you can also add all the official records.

I have a copy of his Army records, they appear in the same series as those who served in the Army during WW1. He wasn't awarded any medals, but I don't think that is a pre-requisite to be remembered on this site, but I am willing to be corrected.
As he didn't go abroad until after the end of the war, he may not have qualified for medals (not that the RMLI ones are on here yet).
Depending on how long he stayed in the Labour Corps, his service record might still be held by the MoD. You can apply here https://www.gov.uk/requests-for-personal-data-and-service-records
Or did he join the CWGC permanently?
