please help decipher War Service Record
« on: Wednesday 04 March 09 06:54 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I wonder if anyone will be able to tell me what it says on the following War Service Records..

In the 1st image, I'm struggling to make out what it says under 'Promotions, Reductions, Casualties' at the dates 9.7.16 and 9.4.1919.

In the 2nd image, I can't make out what it says under Military History Sheet and Name of Medal.

Thanks in Advance.

Can't quite make out the first one but I think it refers to a monetary allotment to his wife.

The second reads........

"Transferred to Class 2 Army reserve on debomalisation"

According to the WW1 Medal Roll he received the Victory Medal and the British Medal.

The image looks like "BM & Victory Medal"
