The RAOC records show a transfer from the King's Regiment to the RAOC on 12/6/1942. This appears doubtful as there is no record in either the King's Regiment or DLI Enlistment Books of Pte Jones having been transferred back to the King's Regiment from the DLI. Possibly RAOC records had not appreciated that Pte Jones had been serving in the DLI.
