Thanks Mack, very good reply. I have seen this kind of thing before with - 25511 Pte. Arthur Smith 22nd (7th Pals) DOW - 29.03.16. He was an older man and found himself initially with the 27th and the 25th before going out with the 22nd on the first draft to France, his service number confirms the initial Reserve allocation, Joshua's however doesn't, it's an original 22nd number. In terms of discipline sometimes it wasn't due to a lack of willingness to fight, it was an inability to adjust to soldiering from civilian life. I suggest a transfer from the 22nd to the 27th then back to the 22nd had something to do with maybe an adjustment problem. I agree with both Timberman and yourself about the transfer to the 4th., due to possible wounds/sickness that would explain the final transfer to the 8th. Your thoughts on this please.

So... It can't be determined that each individual one lies beneath his named headstone, sad. I will have something else to add to this topic (hopefully) next week.
they are under their own headstones
