hi all ,

i recently aquired a pair of medals which came with the soldiers paybook , couple of questions which hopefuly can be answered , firstly are these common i only assume so due to the amount of men who served , also as to the one i have , it only has entrys for 1918 but i know that this man served over seas in 1915 so this throws me a little lastly there appears to be some numbers scribbled in the last pages now im unsure wether these were by the soldier or a nipper with a red pencil i have never seen a paybook so this is why they make no sense (complete amatuer :) ) may be able to post pictures later to see if the scribbles may make sense to anyone

thanks for takeing the time to read and thanks for help in advance

Normal cash payments to a soldier would be entered in blue/black ink. Any stoppages such as charges for kit deficiencies were entered up inn red ink.
