Please can you find any information on my wifes Great Grandfather Ernest Alexander. I have been told by a distant relative he served in the Army Service Corps and enlisted on 29 June 1915 at Caerphilly. He had the rank of Driver. His year of birth was 1896 and he served for 3 years 257 days.He was originally from Kew Lane, Calne, Wiltshire and his next of kin was his mother Mary. His occupation was a miner and lived in the Caerphilly area. He was awarded 2 medals, the war medal and the victory medal.I have a faded photograph of him in his uniform which shows he has a bandolier across his chest. I would really appreciate any information on what he did and where he served.
Many Thanks
Dave
