Hi yep

his name is possibly John william brinkley who was born in 1886 paddington, i sure he was in the E Surrey regt originally. its just that my half brothers great grandfather is in a photo with a soldier and on the back it states 78th canadian grenadier guards.



if it isnt him them the surname of the soldier could be Foley ?

Hi Sue

father John, brothers Robert and Henry, living 23 Cirencseter St, Harrow Rd

Is this the record of the older gent, the other being Foley?
