Veteran Soldiers Fine Record

In the army with his 49 year old son.

Some interesting particulars of a veteran at the front, for whom the record age on active service is claimed, are sent home by Sergeant W Flux, R E. An old volunteer belonging to the Isle of Wight.
He writes to a friend: The most remarkable man in our Company is one named Bill Hall, an old soldier, who enlisted at 47 years of age, but when he produced his marriage certificate we found he was married in 1861, and he has a son out here aged 49.
He is a marvel for work and he has never once fallen out. Though we were on the march once for five days.


This article was published as stated in 1915. It makes you wonder how old this soldier was.

How can he serve at such an age ?
Did he serve in the past?
Is it possible he was in other wars and rejoined?
