I cant find 15085 t Dickinson,15085 is a number that was issued to the 24th manchesters,theres nothing in the MICs or the 24th battalion history.

Thanks Mack,
15085 was Hugh Ingram, who does not have a MIC, so presumably never went overseas.

Thanks Mack, thats a great help I'll add them to the database. You are quite right about Dundavy, his index card reads 1st Manchesters but as you say the record clearly has him as Munsters, my eyesight must be going :D
