A relation of mine, Pte James Murray, Royal Dublin Fusiliers, was awarded the Military Medal and he is mentioned in the London Gazette on 19/11/1917. Having obtained his medal card it seems he served with four different regiments and different service numbers. The list is as follows: 26629 Pte Murray R.D.F 426318 Labour Corps G/30241 Royal Sussex Regt 608120 Sapper Royal Engineers. Sadly i can't find his service records, possibly the Luftwaffe had something to do with that. So my question is simple really, why different army numbers? Ps. I am in possesion of his Victory medal, his M.M has been lost over the years somehow!
