  • Royal Marine Service Record

    Hi,

    I wondered if anyone could offer insight as to what exactly the following phrase means on my great-grandfathers Royal Marines service record, written in the .space below postings.

    "Fraudulently enlisted in the Rifle Brigade as No 6372 Pte
    R Moyle

    D.A.G No 1776/99 25 Mch 1899"

    And where I could look for further info?

    Thanks
    Richard

    Could the DAG reference mean the Deserters and Absentees section of the Police Gazette?

          Thanks for the help everyone, I took a look at the record on fold3, seems to be likely to be the same person age, place of birth, complexion, hair colour all line up (seems to have grown 2 inches in his time in the marines). So in short I guess it means he was dishonorably discharged from the royal marines, tried to enlist in the army under a pseudonym but was found out? Probably explains his absence from the 1901 census!
