THANK YOU
Thanks to your helping me I'm there and know all.
Now linked to Find My Past as you pointed out.
Now shuffling paper for a gift of results. Not as interesting as searching.
Thanks again to you all.

Good Morning Gentlemen
I'm back again with a HELP request
I have just discovered that Frederick Clarke c 1873 who left the Royal Artillery in 1913 as a Sergeant had another period with the regiment.
The 1939 register lists Frederick as Capt. Royal Artillery (retired) and also  Military Clerk ( Retired).
Advice on a route I might follow to find more would be appreciated.

I think this WW1 medal card may be him - a Brigade Sergeant Major (78981), received a temporary commission in 1916, ended the war as acting Captain.

ShaunJ has found him I'm sure - well done! 

I quibble with the National Archives translation of BSM as Brigade Sergeant Major - there is/was no such thing.  He was a Battery Sergeant Major (as he finished his pre-war service).
