Re: service record

I cannot find him in the CWGC web site as a casuallty.:(

About 60% of War records were destroyed during the 2nd WW. So the chances of finding his are reduced by that amount.

I cannot see him on the Medal Rolls Index either.:confused:

Not sure where to look next, sorry.

Re: service record

I thought since he was only a baby when his mother married Gould that maybe he used the Gould name. I found these. See what you think.
Maybe a possibility ??
