None of his military papers for WW1 appear to have his middle name, though there is this.. [doesn't help with birth]

NSW E/R 1913

Thanks Geoff.

Didn't have that.

Can't find the birth in South Africa or NSW.


Searching NSW index for a death with middle name Heiken and * for surname only returns William.

Heiken gets me hits in USA.

Be back later.
