Notes on records

Date Overseas:
The battalion proceeded overseas across midnight of 19th and 20th April 1915 and therefore men are shown with both dates of entries. For the purposes of our records the date of 19th April 1915 has been used in these records.

When a man proceeded overseas after 1st January 1916 the actual date is very rarely shown on the Medal Index Card and is therefore usually only shown on the few remaining records (Service Records etc) if these still exist for the man. In the absence of these records the date of entry is shown as 1st January 1916.
