Are you absolutely certain that your grandfather served in Salonika?

The reason why I ask is that his 9352 service number is for a 1905 Regular Army enlistment which could indicate that he was a reservist at the outbreak of the war.

Only the 6th & 7th Service Battalions of the Dubs served in Salonika but your man's MIC date of entry for France is 9 February 1915 which indicates that he was part of a reinforcement draft for the 2nd Battalion - the only Dubs unit in F&F at that time.

It is possible that he could have been wounded in quick order after his arrival in F&F then shipped back to the UK for recuperation to then be transferred to either the 6th or 7th Btn before their sailing for Gallipoli in July 1915 and their subsequent movement to Salonika.

If your grandfather was in F&F between February to May 1915 then he would have been involved in the Second Battle of Ypres. Is there any suggestion of gassing?

The Med reference to October 1915 could be his posting to the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force but that form of detail is highly unlikely on Discharge papers.

Any chance of a scan?

The type of windowcil could be significant in identifying your location. An architectural/historical website may be able to assist you. To me it looks more mediterranean than french.

Will: I have a man Patrick Delaney, 9364 1st Bn Royal Dublin Fusiliers, a 1905 enlistee. Their serial numbers are only 12 digits apart. Possibly they both joined up in the same month or so? :whistle:
