Military Career

Records show that Oscar Reginald Petterson served in the armed forces. In May 1915 Reginald Oscar PETTERSON (whose mother was Emme Ellen) was a Valet in Baker Street, London. No number so I am not sure if he was working for Sherlock. He joined the 9th Co of London, the Queen Victoria's Rifles. He served only 67 days, as he was underaged and lied about it when he joined up, clainming to be 19 years and 7 months when he was actually 17 years and 7 months.
