Mack,
Using the ICRC database has driven me as daft as the people who digitized it ;D

Normaly entering Muchan into a search engine would take you to names beginning with MUC or in the worst case to MAC. It happens quite often that the search engine takes you past the name and gives the impression that the name doesn't exist. In this case it takes you through to MUDD when in actual effect MAC starts under MOYLE (the section before). The last 15 or so names under Moyle start with Mac*.

I can explain a lot of things but not what was in their heads when they digitized the database! Just carelessness I think, as they use the same alpabet in Switzerland as we do.

Thanks Mack, all added or updated. Jeremiah Canniffe was already in the database as Cunliffe. I must have thought he was a southerner who couldn't pronounce Cunliffe properly  ;D ;D

Thanks Mack, all updated. Turk Lane is more likely Turf Lane in Chadderton.

A Battalion please for 277113 L/Cpl Alfred Mellor. It would appear from the MiCs that he was decorated, any ideas with which one.
Thanks

hiya Charlie.
the only officer captured with the surname miller was 2/Lt r.t miller,taken 3-9-14 with the 2nd battalion,he was sent to Switzerland on 12th august 1916 and repatriated to England on 23-3-18,MIDs[haig]17-2-15.
its possible the two PA numbers refer to two different officers,Lt ralph,m miller was reported killed on 30th july 1916 with 17th batt,they may have got both cross referenced.
