Born Camberwell London married to my grandmother Ethel white. I need help I. Understanding his conduct sheet and what he would have done in the 1ww. He served with the RAMC in Grease for two years as 2nd field ambulance but I don't know what it was like for him any help mostly appreciate as I'm new to military side of things. I have his service papers but am unsure I can upload them. I thank you in advance

You should start by looking at
http://www.1914-1918.net

It may take some time but it's one of the best places to start. Incidentally, it's always a good idea to tell us the name, unit (as low level as you can) and number in the unit if you need help.

If I've got the right man, have found one entry on the Regt Conduct Sheet
date: 23 Dec 1916
Offence: absent when on draft 54 3/4 hours
punishment: 24 hours ?detention, deprived of 24 days pay
There is a typed note further down on the card which says:
"Certified that there is no record of the above mentioned soldier having incurred any further regimental entry during his service in RAMC.

Many many thanks that's fantastic I never knew he was in that battalion. I am unable to read the writing on his personal papers so that is fantastic. Would you be able to explain the conduct sheet a little bit more. And what was all the info about the TA a signed up to in the event of any further out break of war. I can't thank you enough steph

Steph - I have no idea of the answers you seek. I have given you the information on the conduct sheet that I found. It only had the one misbehaviour (AWOL) entry.
If you have some personal papers passed down through the family that you want interpreting then you are going to have to scan and upload them for us to look at!
