Hi,

Welcome to FHUK.

On his army service record does it give his age, next of kin and address?

Post what infomation you have about him ,name, who he married etc and we will try to help.

Hello

Thank you for your kind reply

He was about 24 when and next of kin he wrote his uncle (John Boesinger)

My grandfather's name is : Eric J. Boesinger

Corps Regiment No Rank
Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry 22698 Acting Serjeant
Royal Engineers 1st King George's Own Sappers and Miners 357290 Corporal

Date 1914-1920

When he was in the army he wasn't married...

Thanks for your help once again
Best Regards

Hi Besma,

Did you see this service record for a John Merryn Boesinger, bn and ox regiment, wonder if this Erics uncle. He gives his next of kin as Mrs Boesinger (Victoria Rogers) (son Eric William son born 10.12.16.,
-lor Gold Fields) address, 1/144 Mount Rd, Catherine (as transcribed by Ancestry) P.O., Madras.Y ou may be looking at India for his birth!.

Hello

Yes I know this info.. John Merrvn is my grandfather brother... I have his army records too.
I did search all these sites.. no luck I found his family birth registrations but no luck for my grandfather.. thats why I was frustrated. and still searching.. but I thought I will be lucky to find more info through his army career.. in his units...

Thank you so much for all your help

Wishing you all the best
Besma
