Mack,
Thanks for the offer of help, let me try it out before we go any further with it. I'll get back to you.

I can believe thats all you have found, I roughly worked it out that, ignoring the specific Manchesters sections, the hit rate is about 0.5%.

Do you have a Battalion for 49448 William Parton please.

Charlie

Mack, have you anything on these please:

William Parken no number, 9th Bn, from Swindon. The only one I can find is RFA.

A Battalion for 54503 John Watler

A number for Job Steele Webb, I can't find him in the MiCs

Eugene Patient the ICRC have him as 63rd Regt, so if he's Manchesters 1st Bn. http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/4520043/3/2/

Thanks
Charlie
