(Additional information : In 1911, he was serving as a Private with the 1st Bn. Yorkshire Regiment employed as a boot repairer at the British Barracks, Khartoum, The Sudan.
From his Medal Index Rolls card he is shown as serving with the North West Frontier Force in 1919. Therefore, the CWGC may be incorrect putting him as being with the 2nd Battalion. More likely the 1st Battalion.)
