What is this, please?
« on: Tuesday 13 November 18 18:01 GMT (UK) »
I've found this little snippet on FindMyPast, but I don't know quite what it is.

Can anyone help ID it, please?

British Army Service records.

Well, yes, I can see that from the dataset heading, but I was particularly wondering if anyone could be more specific  ;D

I think it is a list of transfers either into or out of the various companies, but without seeing more of the document I couldn't offer anything definite.
Can you provide the citation ref.?

I searched FindMyPast's military records section for

G Hatton
Service No 8475

and apart from his medal card entry, this was the only hit, so the rest of his service history seems to have gone up in smoke  :(

Found it!
None the wiser though, it is part of a damaged record in:- Wo 363 - First World War Service Records 'Burnt Documents'.
Hatton Burnt Doc.
Sorry can't help any further.

They all appear to be 1st Battalion Leicestershire Regiment, list made after May 1917 (from the promotion date of a sgt) by the Infantry Record Office that looked after that regiment.  Could be a leave list, look up 8055 Newman where there is a similar typewriter with dates along the bottom and three names (Newman Sturgess and Warrener also appearing).


Just asking Dr Watson for an opinion .

Just had another look and found this in FindMyPast's transcription:-
Originating Record   WO 363. 4/2267 Amos Tilley, Leicestershire Regiment

So you have correctly identified them.
Well done MaxD.

What the list is for is still up for debate.
