Fred Bainbridge, Tank Corps

RIC gives Fred. Wm Bainbridge, b1892 in Yorkshire, and this man fills the clues. However Fred.Wm is not flaged as a Temp Cadet, and was dismissed. The Temp Cadet is F in all mentons

Wwe know he was in Tank Corps. In addition the Leave Book has him as "F Bambridge" who does not appear as an officer anywhere. More clues are needed to be sure I have the right man. The MIC is correct, but whether he was "Frederick William" or "Fred" I am unsure if this is one man or two. Using the MIC address I think our man comes from Staffordshire, and is nothing to do with Fredrick Wm
