Armed Forces / How to interpret Army Record
« on: Wednesday 23 September 20 09:04 BST (UK)  »
Hello, I am paid to have my relatives Army Record digitised but I am afraid I am none the wiser as I do not understand some of the shortened (capital letters) used to describe what he has done or where he is.  Can anyone - who loves to delve into Army history - help me to decipher this.
Also it mentions "Embarked at Townsville for (or per) "David Shanks" - what does this mean?
I have borrowed the history of the 2/12th unit and I would like to match my relatives records with the history of this unit.  The man I am researching is Walter Charles Horsfall NX 11278.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.  His records are now digitised with the National Archives of Australia.  Thank you

Hello majm, Once again many thanks for all your help.  These posts are very helpful.  Still wondering though does the council or ? keep a record of why and who streets were named after.
Your input was much appreciated.

Thank you Igor Strav, The Toelle family lived in Sydney, NSW.  thank you for the idea of searching neighbours - good thought!  I will try and track down neighbours from the census.   This man seemed to get work, was later naturalised and did quite well for himself in. the building trade.  I appreciate your input.

Thank you Billyblue,  I have some idea of what is required today.....I was really looking for clues as to how it would have been back in 1855.   I appreciate your thoughts. Regards
