Just a quick question.
Doe's anyone know which RD defender had the longest military services regardless of any gaps. As I'm aware that some of the defenders rejoined when the great war started.

24th. It does say credited with the longest military services. I wouldn't doubt the author's research. So I would take it a fact until otherwise proven not to be the case.
