Rifleman W Pateman, 24th Rifle Brigade & 1/5th RW Kent Regt

Chailey Parish Magazine first mentions Walter Pateman in August 1916 noting, Pateman, Rif W, C/Co Rifle Brigade, India.  In October 1916 it reports that he is serving with the 24th Rifle Brigade in India and in January 1917 that he is with the 1/5th Royal West Kent Regiment.  His name appears for the final time in the parish magazine in December 1917 as: Pateman, Rif W, C/Co, 1/5 R W Kent.
