On second thoughts, you might be better off downloading Albert Edward Hill's service record from Findmypast. It includes the details of the marriage and two children.


My searching on FindMyPast is not turning up anything that looks specifically like the service record of the Albert Edward Hill that I am looking for. What criteria are you searching for that is turning up something?
Thanks.

If you search Military Records with the name and year of birth given in your first message and select "British Army Service Records" (which is what you want) as the record set, there are only four records to choose from.
