He has some service records available on ancestry.........again if you message me, i will forward them to you.
In fact, it looks like the Medal roll could be wrong....he joined up 23.11.1915 in Spalding, where you would expect a Lincs TF man to join the 1/4th Battalion.
There it is on one of the pages, he joined the 1/4th, went to the 1/5th, and back to the 1/4th....they got the battalion listing the wrong way round.
Lived Kirton, near Boston, Lincs
Landed in France 14.11.1916
Posted to 1/5th 29.01.1918
No mention seen of the 3/4th Battalion.
