Just checking that through at the moment, as soon as you came up with Traxon I checked that out with other RB men.

The number sequence could match, will have to check as the numbers 40432 to 58074 were either Territorials attached to the Rifle Brigade, transfers from other units and the Training Reserve.
Will do some digging.
Thanks, it is all much appreciated.

Mack,
You were absolutely right, I am now dancing around my computer as this one was giving me a headache. It will also teach me to brush up on the Census, just never been able to deal with it.
Looks like a sound candidate but will check through the papers, so thank you thank you.

Mack,
Yes I did thanks, also had a gentleman contact me through you with a bit of info on his relation in the RB's, now helping him with details of the Battalions exploits (3rd).
Did you get my PM re Lawson, just wondered if you had Sidney Sussex College Roll or Haileybury College.
