PostSubject: Why so many Army numbers?   28/10/2016, 20:47

Dear Baor,

Just passing on information about my Grandfather Charles William Martin Page in the hope you may have more information about his service in WWI.

He was born in 1898 in Birmingham and by 1917 he was serving as a Private in the Army Service Corps as a Motor Driver. These are the details on my mother's birth certificate, she was Violet Elise Page.
From different sources I have found the following information that relates to him, as below, which shows different Army numbers.
He, however, did not marry my Grandmother but instead married a German girl in 1920 while in Cologne so my mother was born illegitimately. So he was serving in German long after the end of WWI.

From 1918 Absent voters list
13 Alfred Place, Osler Street, Rotton Park Ward. Birmingham - M/279643, M.T, ASC 1st Bn.

From 1919 Absent voters list
13 Alfred Place, Osler Street, Rotton Park Ward, Birmingham - M/279643, M.T ASC.

1920 electoral roll
13 Alfred Place, Osler Street, Ladywood, Birmingham - 497357 Bin., 2/13 Lon. Regt.

1920 December 14th Command 585 M.T. Coy. R.A.S.C. at Cologne
Marriage between Charles William Martin Page and Katherine Schnicels Schiley (widow) in Cologne, father to Katherine is Heinrich Schnicels, Postman.

1921 electoral roll
13 Alfred Place, Osler Street, Birmingham - M/18795 L/Cpl., RASC

I know the majority of WWI records were destroyed in WWII but I was wondering if you might have more information about his service in the R.A.S.C. at this time and why he had so many Army numbers?

Any additional information on my Grandfather or where he served would be extremely welcome.

Yours sincerely
Phil B
