M Giblin, Birmingham


New member
Hi guys, great forum!

I'm looking up my family history for my dad, and we've hit a snag at his grandad or my great grandad. He was from Birmingham with the surname Giblin, but my dad can't remember his first name, just that he thinks it began with an M. He had three kids; Mariam/Mary, Doris and Tom. Apparently he served in the First World War and i was wondering where he served and what he was up to. We already know that he was some sort of Observer Corpsman or air raid warden during WWII, so it would be very interesting to know what service he was doing in his younger years.

Can anyone help me? It would be very much appreciated.
