Yesterday I wrote about the Royal Artillery records that FindMyPast have just released. You can read that post HERE.
Later on I was involved in a conversation via Twitter with +Seonaid Harvey Lewis about the various purposes of the columns on the document.

What a great conversation that was, but I also thought how useful it was. So I am sharing the explanation of the information below.

Someone recently left a comment on another post or perhaps YouTube that the 120/38 could be 120 Battery of the 38th Reg – now I don't know if that is possible, so I am now looking into that.
Hi, Julie, Thanks for your explanation of the attestation papers – it helped with a War Memorial write-up. I can't help with the 120/38 numbers, but I would be interested to know if anyone can reveal their meaning.
