Thanks Chris....19-4-1916.

Any ideas what the other postings and dates are...i can only guess but you may have more of an idea given your knowledge about the regiment and where they went etc. Is this statement of service a chronological account of his postings? ie where he went and when? Do these docs identify which battles Richard took part in?? So each time a soldier was sent somewhere it was recorded on this document?
