Thank you.   That is very helpful.

Armed Forces / Understanding service records
« on: Saturday 30 March 19 10:59 GMT (UK)  »
I have recently obtained my grandfathers army service record which covers WW1 and thru the 20's to 1932.   From 1923 onwards he appears to have been in the Territorial Army initially with the 9th HLI.    However there is an entry where he is "discharged" on one day, and immediately re-enlisted the following day in the Royal Engineers.   There is a reference which looks to read ".....discharged under A.O. 285 / 1924 para 27 (b)"    He then serves as a reserve from 1924 to 1932.     Can anyone tell me what the discharge reference means ?   Is this just an internal transfer ?

Also, his HLI service in 1923/24 is on a form title "Territorial Army", whereas the one from 1924 is titled "Army Reserve - Supplementary Reservists (Militiamen)" .   What's the significance of that, if any ?

I'll remove the links
Send Chrissyann the images

Thanks.   I appreciate that.  I know it was all well intended.
In the end she may just ask that I post them here anyway.  We shall see.

I was actually trying to give the original poster the option of seeing them without posting to the public forum.

Hi there.
Happy to send them to you.  Send me a PM with your email address and I'll get them to you.

I hope to visit the cemetery in the near future as I have a list of lairs to try and locate myself, tho sadly many headstones have long since been removed.

I had a note of this to look when next in Lambhill Cemetery, but while searching for something else I found the lair record and burial details for the lair which gives details of who else is interred there.
I know this is an old post, but if you do pick it up, let me know if you would like the images.

Here is a wee snippet I found

"secondary schools were divided into three-year junior secondary schools, leading to no qualifications, and the five year senior secondary schools, leading to the leaving certificate and university entrance."

I am nor sure if it was standard practice, but I know that some junior secondary schools had a selection process at the end of second year whereby the high performing pupils were transferred to senior high for the remainder of their school life and so could go on to do highers etc

St Gerard's was a senior secondary, but not sure about St George's.   If you contact the Archivist at the Mitchell library in Glasgow they have a wealth of info and will be able to tell you.  If you have access to the Mitchell they also have registers etc for many schools.
