Blimey I don't know what to say - THANK YOU MaxD and Ady. I never expected such a detailed reply. 

I have an ancestry subscription - what's the difference in coverage on findmypast?
How did you discover he was attached to 11th Battalion?  I will try and read the diary tonight.
Last question: how do I search the Gazette if I don't know the date someone was commissioned?
Thank you both very much - Alison

World War One / 1/4th Battalion, Royal Sussex Regt. in 1918
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 20:34 GMT (UK)  »
I'm a bit confused and hoping someone can explain. 

I'm looking at the records for 2/Lt. Charles Thomas Squires, 4th Bn., Royal Sussex Regiment (Territorial), who died of wounds on 30 March 1918.  He is buried in France.  However, when I looked on the Long, Long Trail it looks like the Battalion didn't land in France until May 1918.  Please could someone put me straight.

*just found his MIC which looks like he was originally #2464 Hon. Artillery Company* still confused though :-\

Thanks MaxD.  I'm pretty rubbish at finding entries on the Gazette so really appreciate the link. 

I assume a CSM was quite an important/responsible role an he was only 23 when he died.

Thanks again.

Thank you Ady and ScobieDrom.  I had no idea he was mentioned in dispatches. I now need to look at a map to find out where Karasouli is!  Thanks so much.
