Royal Lancaster Regiment 1903 Manchester
« on: Tuesday 26 September 17 21:58 BST (UK) »
My relative 5572 John Price (from Hulme, Manchester) signed on a short service enlistment with the Kings Royal Rifle Corp in October 1903.

He stated he was in the Royal Lancaster Regiment (Militia??) at this time....it looks like 19th? or 12th? (eligible)

Why would he sign up if already with Royal Lancaster???
