Thanks for that...i found him too but the relatives say that 'their' lionel was in the 12th Lancers and survived. (The lionel in the Lancs Fusiliers unfortunately perished).
Is there anyway I can answer their query do you think?
Warmest best wishes
Not sure if you can help but here goes.
Lionel Lloyd Clarke was rejected for the War as he was too young so he enlisted under a different name as Lionel Day. This is the story Ive been told but I would love to know if its true
Thanks for your help
Im helping a friend to track her grandfather who served in the Boer war.
He was Lionel Lloyd Clark , born 1884 in St Pancras London but was rejected as he was too young so he then signed up under a ?false name of LIONEL DAY and the family have a Boer war medal in that name.
how can i find out...
