I'm guessing that reveille would be no later than 7am.

Chris, can't explain the name, that's down to whoever filled it in. I do know it was for my Father to attend a funeral of family friend. Remember him telling me, travelled up, funeral, travelled back.

Second Circle of Hell.
The verse on the inside of the Christmas Card reads:

There's gladness in remembrance
Now greeting time is here,
And in my "Book of Memory"
Your name is ever dear.
May you while we are parted,
Happy and safe remain,
Till we renew our memories,
And share our joys again.

His Release Book lists his conduct as "exemplary" and the testimonial says:

A very honest and reliable man. He has performed his work in the Army very satisfactorily at all times, applying himself dilligently and conscientiously to whatever he has been given to do. He is recommended as being hardworking, adaptable, efficient and most trustworthy.
