The card also gives a reference for the silver war badge, although I have been unable to locate George on this roll. The roll for the 1914-15 Star notes that he was discharged on 21st January 1919.
Frederick's entry on the silver war badge roll would appear to be incorrect as it contradicts the medal index card, stating that he enlisted on 1st February 1915 and did not serve overseas. His age (in 1919) is given as 23.
It also notes that he arrived overseas on 13th August 1914. In fact, Alfred had joined the Coldstream Guards in November 1912 and so would have had nearly two years' experience under his belt by the time he arrived in France with the BEF; one of the Old Contemptibles.

I have not found a medal index card for him which suggests that he never served overseas.
