Grand father's attestation for Artillery

Postby philippereynolds » Mon Jan 25, 2016 9:23 am

Could anyone explain the abbreviations on this attestation? I think the person in question may have been my grand father, Robert George Henry Hall Reynolds b1911. My dad seems think this may have been his national service record. Many thanks.

All the better for the copyright police to track you down :)

Why do you think it refers to National Service - the only date shown is 1934?

It seems to be saying that he was discharged on 17.12.34 in consequence of para 199(3) of the TA Regs (Territorial Army Regulations).

Thanks Peter. The only reason it was thought it may have been his national service, was that there isn't any family knowledge of him ever having been in the regular army before being called up to the Artillery during WWII. Where he remained in the UK for the duration, due to having problems with his feet, or so the story goes.

That's fair enough is he was in the Territorial Army. I'm afraid I don't have access to the TA Regs so don't know what para 199(3) says. The National Archives probably have a copy.
