Quote from: FosseWay on August 12, 2020, 11:39:39 AMI've found his medal index card - definitely the same guy, with service number 5161, private in the 12th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers. His first name is Thomas. The F is still unknown. He was awarded the Victory Medal, BEF Medal and 1915 Star - i.e. standard issue for someone who served in France/Flanders and neither received a medal for individual gallantry nor was busted for any kind of serious offence.Now I've got a first name it makes it easier to search the civilian databases (principally the 1911 census, where he ought to show up). More to follow.
