This one may a be needle in a haystack.
The ICRC index card lists a 200735? Cpl Charles Arthur Cans? 2/5th Bn, born 29.09.1898, from Higher Broughton. Taken Hargicourt 21.03.1918 and held at G�strow. The question marks are on the index card after the surname and number.
According to the MICs 200735 is L/Cpl William Ellison also 2709. He is not listed in the ICRC records.
Any ideas?
Charlie

Can you have a look if you have anything on 28545 John Henry Church, 15 Kelsall St, Ardwick. I think he may have been Middlesex Regt when captured. I can't find him in the ICRC records either under Middlesex or Manchester Regts.
Thanks
