    WWI soldier tracing.

    My paternal great grandfather fought in WWI. He was awarded campaign medals, and I have a photograph of him in uniform from the period. I do not know the regiment he fought in, or where he saw service. I have tried using the WWI search on Ancestry.co.uk, and found nothing. One previous search...
