Hi,
Yes, I realise that the RASC  & ASC are the same. I meant that the Frederick in the North Staffs was transferred after the date of the newspaper article whether it was RASC or ASC, if that makes sense.

F Griffin (Frederick)
Army Service Corps, Army Service Corps, Royal Garrison Artillery
T4/059926, S/059926, 220584

T = horse transport? He was a Driver, and your man was a carter in 1911. Which looks promising.
But there is the RGA in the mix.

as he was transferred to the RASC after the date of the newspaper article.

Can you tell us the date of the article?

Thanks again. The article was in the Bolton Journal & Guardian on 20th Oct 1916. It was about his brother Tom Griffin who was in the Canadians and had been injured on 8th Oct 1916 (his birthday). At the end of the article it just mentions Fred being in the ASC and is the only clue I have on him.
Hope that helps.

Hi,
I have looked at the medal record that you suggest, and it is a possibility. I suppose I will never know. If nothing else I have eliminated the one I thought it was, so that is something.
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks
