A lot of WW1 records were destroyed in WW2 when the place they were kept was bombed.

Unfortunately, more than half of their service records were destroyed in September 1940, when a German bombing raid struck the War Office repository in Arnside Street, London. However, an estimated 2.8 million service records survived the bombing or were reconstructed from the records of the Glossary - opens new windowMinistry of Pensions. This means that there is a roughly 40% chance of finding the service record of a soldier who was discharged at some time between 1914 and 1920.

Hopefully someone with access will be able to check and see if George's records survived or not.

Hi Dave,

Thanks so much for that medal card! I have gotten some really interesting information from that! Just a pity that we can't find his full record:(

Thanks again
