I came across a Pte Walter William Monkhouse who volunteered in November 1914 after the outbreak of hostilities and joined the 1/24th London (Queen's) Regiment.
After his training in 1915, rather than go to France or Gallipoli, he was drafted to Ireland and was engaged with his Battalion in assisting to quell the Irish Rebellion. However, owing to an injury which he sustained in the course of his duties he was unable to secure his transfer to a theatre of war and was invalided to a hospital in England. In May 1916 he was discharged as medically unfit for further service.
Consequently he does not have a Medal Index Card (not entitled to any medals) because he never entered a theatre of war, only a Silver War Badge, the roll confirming his enlistment on 9/11/14 and discharge on 5/5/16
Now I'm not saying his service was any less worthy than that of his colleagues who saw action on the Western Front, etc. It just caught me eye because I'm assuming this chap volunteered to join the army (probably in response to the Kitchener posters) with the full expectation of fighting the German's at a time when the British Empire was heavily engaged in the First World War. Instead he was sent West to deal with the Irish and never got a sniff of WW1 action!
