In Response To: Re: Missing Enlistment Record ()

My experience of mobilising people nęarly 200 years later is that a problem of concatenating two records is particularly thorny. Even today it's very difficult without a unique identifier, and this in an era of databases, computers, NI, NHS numbers and blood groups. . In a world of handwritten record, spelling variations and poor birth registraion doubly so. Either them being separate records for one or 2 different people seem equally probable.
