With 5th F S before it (his record on FindMyPast is more readable)  - but I haven't yet worked out what F S was that had a 5th battalion.

5th Battalion East Surrey Regiment (Territorials).  They were in Wimbledon as a Volunteer Battalion pre 1908 (VB is distinguishable also).  Lived in Putney married in  Roehampton, all in the same neck of the woods.

Adds up for me?
