    My guess would be a clerical error; I guess the word "Senior" is easy to forget. I also have this kind of inconsistency in a couple of my sets of research. I have one group where the record card contradicts three award sheets (Private as opposed to three times Corporal). I guess it isn't unlogical that several years after the war, when the recipient had already been decommissioned for a couple of years, some details on the record card were off. Therefore I usually tend to trust the earlier documents more, although in this case I think the clerk simply forgot the word "Senior".
