Just a thought if he changed his birth year to enlist, maybe he might have been born 29 Dec 1922 in which case he won't show up on the birth reg just yet??

Thanks gibbo.

Yes.
Might have to wait another year to get all the 1922 births - 1923 reg perhaps.

Can't think of why he would not put the correct dob when he enlisted.

153 records match your query. Press "Find" to display them.

We gave up last time around.

I can't find anything in Trove except several In Memoriam that have his death date as 12 Dec.

Martha is the only one I've traced. Don't know of siblings so better look.

Same issue with index giving me no births.

Lots of deaths for children at a young age.
