William Robinson served with the 1st Battalion, The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment. His service number, and that he was an Acting Sergeant suggests that William was a pre-war regular soldier.

William landed in France on 12 Aug 1914. He qualified for the 1914 star, although the fact that the clasp is not annotated on his medal index card suggests that he may not have been with the majority of the battalion under-fire at Mons.

At some point William transferred to the Royal Army Medical Corps, his new service number being 4298.
