    Have not found anything about him yet.
    He served abroad (post 1915) in the 2nd, 14th and 1st Btns respectively.

    Cheers,

    Ron,

    Likely the following man.

    9573 Josiah Musgrove.
    A Burnley man, he enlisted between the 8th and 14th of September 1903 and was a bandsman.
    By the outbreak of war he was a reservist and went to France with the first contingent of the 1st Btn.

    Wounded at Aisne and home recovering by 17/10/1914. Again wounded at the Marne, about 26/01/1915, by a shell collapsing trench on him and crushing his back and arm, he was recovering in the Second Southern General Hospital, Southmead, Bristol in the February.

    His wife resided at 4 Eastham Place, Burnley. His daughter was born the day he arrived home on furlough after his first wounding. She was named Catherine Marne Musgrove, her middle name marking his place of wounding.

    Cheers,

    WW2 arm badge removed from uniform, I have a similar example but not close enough to make a matched pair.
