Correctly named to 033072 Pte R Wood AOC
Robert was 40 years old when he was called up to the colours. He attested in July 1917. Fortunately some papers still exist for him.
We have him living at 208 Warwick Road Carlisle and also in his papers is his request to work in the stores as this is similar to the line of work he did as a civilian. He is discharged in 1919 with s Silver War Badge numbered B275277. He is entitled to a pair. His Victory and SWB are not present.
The medal has a lovely patina but does not have a ribbon.
