South West England
Hello and wondering if anyone can shed light on Joseph Blantern Dyson
date of death please?

He was born in Guildford Surrey in 1861 and was married twice: initially to Catherine Newman and then Susannah Harris; living mostly in and around the Portsmouth area and working as a Government Clerk.

An enquiry on Ancestry threw up a WW1 medal card with a Joseph Blantern Dyson listed as a colour sergeant with the 6th Hants but searches on various sites ( including the Hampshire regiment site/ national Archives) haven't resulted in any information; no number was given for him either. However this could be someone different; after all he would have been 53 at the outbreak of WW1 so is it unlikely?

Any ideas as to how I should proceed or any avenues I could explore? Many thanks!
