HI CHRIS,  L/CORP HALSALL not spotted him, found two serjeant McBride's
and three l/corps Wilkinson but  9  serjeants  on medal cards , so Wilkinson
could have got a promotion to serjeant, and 1 went on to a act/lieutenant. i  will let you know how i get on. tony  ==update, only found 1 HALSALL ROBERT W 28603 CORPORAL,  none of them on cwgc so looks good.


mod edit: ignore halsall, he was on the incorrectly posted doc, chris

With the number 79184 I would have thought it would have been 1917 or later ???

In modern day terms isn't the parade called Janglers 'cos of the noise the chains made when the chained together soldiers came out of the guard house ???

Jankers

In the British Armed Services, jankers is formal punishement, as opposed to the casual award of tasks for minor infringements. To be "on jankers" is to have been formally charged by a non-commissioned officer or commissioned officer, to have had the details of the charge entered into a charge sheet (Army Form No. 252 in the British Army), to have appeared before an officer, and to have been subsequently Confined to Barracks for a specified interval, or what ever else.

"Jankers" was a familiar part of National Service. The term is also used in civilian life and journalism to mean the punishment of minor infringements by the imposition of tedious duties. BBC comedies, such as It Ain't Half Hot Mum used the term, with the first ever episode "Meet the Gang" seeing Gunner Graham put on "jankers" (painting stones) by the Sergeant Major

I've seen one or two examples of Jankers (not personnelly mind)
