An original wallet of discharge documents for Corporal Bert Cook who enlisted in Cardiff in November 1914 though appears to not have served abroad until sometime in 1916. He was born in on the 2nd November 1887 in Grantham in Lincolnshire, so perhaps a bit odd that he joined up in Cardiff, as a Volunteer in 1914. He was discharged on 5/2/18 with a Silver War Badge after 3 years and 101 days with the colours as being no longer physically fit for War Service because of a gunshot wound to the right arm. He is listed as living at Cecil Street Grantham and was allowed to wear a single wound stripe. He is listed as being a Printer, and was 30 years and 3 weeks old when he was discharged.
He was with the Machine gun Corps and the Welsh Regiment, but as I can no longer access ancestry I do not have his SWB or Medal rolls so don't know which Battalions he served with so I cannot work out exactly where he served, though I know he served with the BEF in France from 9/7/16 to 9/11/16, presumably prior to his wounding.
It is a tidy little group but it would be great if I could get copies of his missing medal and war badge rolls.
