        Hi Peter
        Thank you for identifying this omission. It appears from his Short Service Attestation that he was entirely engaged in Home Service, so has no Medal Record. I have created a Life for him: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7696640

          Hi Cynthia
          Thank you for identifying this duplicate. The records are now merged with https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/253131as the Primary. I have also found and added Service Record for him, which uses the 'Baylis' spelling.

            Hi Eddie
            Records merged with the one you've been working on as the Primary: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5124036
            Your additions from Ancestry cover the 1914-15 Star from the duplicate Life Story. If other records lead you to conclude his name should be 'Allen', it will be easily changed.
            Best wishes

              Hi
              Thank you for pointing out the anomaly - the error was clearly a historical slip as the National Archives record has a correct transcription of what is on the page. Fortunately his surname, regiment and service number make clear he is indeed Ernest Hall, for whom I have found an existing life story using the service number for his subsequent service in the Labour Corps. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5345780
              That MIC shows his earlier service Pte. #9051, East Kent Regiment.
              I have made the 'rogue' life story a duplicate, added the MIC from it to Ernest Hall (it showed the award of the DCM), with a note of explanation and also added the London Gazette entry for his DCM, which states "9051 Private E. Hall, 1st Battalion, East Kent Regiment." I hope that will clear up any confusion.
              Best wishes
              Jane

              The rogue entry shows the award of the DCM and I have added

                Hi Lucas
                A record for Charles did already exist: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2527192 - but it included a prefix to his service number - L/9684. I have added his CWGC and 'Soldiers Died' records to that one.

                      Dear Fr Neil
                      L/C Benjamin John Deed's life story is https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5116543
                      It did exist but with only half a service number, which I have corrected from a clear MIC image - thank you for pointing out that he could not easily be found.
                      Best wishes

                        Hi
                        I do think 1921 is rather too late as the only evidence from which to create a new life story, but if you check https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/122792 and look at the Absent Vote List entry for that Thomas Bagshaw, you will find a man of the same name at the same address whose service progressed from the Northumberland Fusiliers via the Labour Corps to the RAOC, in which he was a Lance Corporal. I have found the following snippet on https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/267442-ordnance-corps-army-numbers/
                        "Seven-figure numbers were introduced in about 1921-22 to be unique across the Army. Each regiment or corps was allocated its own block of numbers, RAOC numbers all beginning 75."
                        In other words, Thomas Bagshaw #S/10188 could well have become Thomas Bagshaw #7575414. Do you agree he is likely to be the right man?
                        Best wishes

                                        I believe this man does already have a Life Story: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/122756
                                        I have added to that Life a Pension Ledger and Index Card from Ancestry, including the details in the description so you can see them, as I'm not sure whether you have access to Ancestry. That gives his residence place as Leenside, Nottm. The Absent Voters' list gives his Labour Corps service number 168206 but states that he was attached to the ASC. The MIC image attached to lifestory/122756 gives his service nos. for the 1st S Staffs and the ASC and notes that he served in the Labour Corps but omits that service number, but this man seems to be the only Richard Bagshaw in the Leenside area of Nottingham.
