Hi Guys.

I've established my Grandfather, George William Graham was in the reserves in 1914, and working as a Male Nurse.

His sevice number was 9650, Middlesex Regiment, and he joined up when he was 19, in 1904/5, as a regular, but I don't know long he served as a full timer, until he was put on reserves.

Does anyone know where and when the 4th Batalion, Middlesex Regiment, was mobilised, and were did they embark from in the UK to France?

Hello ptjw7.

That is stunning! :eek: Totally new to me, and I guess if he declared on his marriage certificate, in 1913, he was a male nurse, so, I guess a millitary nurse?

So, is there any history about what they were doing in India, and was he entitled to any service medals?

This has opened up a whole new aspect of his life.

Thank you very much. :)

You've got me thinking.

I have somewhere what I can only describe as a card certificate [letter sized] with the Middlesex Regiment coat of arms centre, and battle honours around it, with grandad's name on it, signed by his CO.

I'll have to look for it again.
