Subject: [Lon] why would someone in London join the Devon Regiment in 1914 war
Date: Sun, 4 May 2003 21:28:43 +0100
I do hope this isn't a silly question, but could someone tell me how in the 1914-18 war did a guy decide which regiment to join.
My ancestor William G Challis, who lived in Chelsea, joined the 2nd Bat. Devon Regiment, and subsequently died 1st July 1916 in one of the Battles of the Somme.
