There's been a thread or two about army numbers in the past, so now for something completely different. The lowest number? I was in Canterbury Cathedral this morning and looked at the memorial books listing the fallen from 1914 onwards. On one of them the name of Major Kealy, he of Mirbat, was showing, but another caught my eye because of the numbers. I've had a look at the CWGC website and there is indeed a Private E H Jeffrey listed as having died on 2nd May 1915 and commemorated on the Menin Gate which rather implies he didn't die in India. But, it gives his service number as 9797 instead of 1. Can anyone shed any light on why he might have the number 1 by his name, and also India when he died on the Western Front? I've tried checking Cpl Bishop (from the top of the image) and his number was indeed 2404, and his name is on a memorial in Delhi. Others in the image also have the correct numbers and did indeed die in India.
