I googled it Patrick, and it was money owed to Soldiers who died in Service.
I've attached the rest of the page and RP nottingham crops up in their records. Maybe RP Nottingham verified the amount due & passed it on to the mens families.
John was in the Kings Own Scottish Borderers and fought in India inc the Tirah Campaign, then to Africa for the Boer War and was back in civvy street when WW1 started. So he Joined up and because he was in his 40s he was put in the Labour Corps.
