Armed Forces / Re: Did soldiers have to provide ID on enlistment?
« on: Sunday 14 February 21 03:17 GMT (UK)  »
In this case the Soldier did not Provide ID on enlistment but ran away to enlist. His middle class father wrote to the Army and sent a copy of his birth certificate. It is the only copy of a WW1 soldier's birth certificate in in the "Unburnt" World War I Army records I have ever seen.

"1918: 06550 Gunner Joseph Smith Routledge, 23 Heavy Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery, died 2 SEP 1918. Commonwealth War Graves Commission. His army records contain his birth certificate which is unusual. His father sent the Army JSR's Birth Certificate as he was too young to be posted overseas. He had run away and joined the Army. Although too young for overseas postings the Army kept him in the British Isles until he was of age and immediately posted him to France where he was killed.

The Army did not release him but just returned him
