The above link states WWI MEDAL TRIO AUCKLAND MOUNTED RIFLES but in the description it states 13/2039 Gnr A.H. Glass. N.Z.E.F. Was he ALSO in the AMR??

Anyone?

The 13 prefix is definitely AMR. Over 2,000 mounted riflemen were transferred into the NZ Division in March 1916, including into the new artillery brigades. This man was probably one of these.

Greg
on the lists page I have copied the prefix numbering system.
