The 3rd/5th Battalion was a Reserve Battalion which itself never went overseas, remaining to recruit, and train reinforcements. Raised in Bury St Edmunds, it was then stationed in Halton, near Tring, before merging with the 4th reserve battalion in 1917.
Cyril died in the military hospital in Aylesbury. A war gratuity being deemed in-admissable and no medal index card signifies that he did not serve abroad.
