Hang on boys, something not quite right here.

The Honourable Edward Cornish Poole ? Regimental Sergeant Major?

His papers say he was a labourer when he enlisted, he was imprisoned for desertion, and he never rose above the rank of Corporal!

Fishy or what?

Hi Steve

I would go with his service record and not what the article says.

Remember where the article comes from:
The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 - 1954), Friday 13 November 1942, page 1 Suspect

The 'From' date is the date he departed UK not the date he arrived in South Africa.
