Thanks Mack. I have found the Schofields, just where you would expect them to be indexed - under "Sheffrey".  ??? ;D

Mack,
I'm back again :)

Albert Silley PA 24006. Can you throw any light on him? He is listed as 18th Bn, the only Albert Silley in the MiCs is T2SR/01733 ASC.

Andrew Symonds PA 7732. I think he is Gloucesters.

Thanks
Charlie

Thanks Mack,
I was pretty sure you would easily be able to identify Sinclair, in fact I would have put money on it, but that's why I don't do the Lottery ;D ;D

Do you have the Bns please for:

60438 Frederick Smethurst
43404 Henry Smith

Daniel Smith, have I got the right one with 9604? http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/1471583/3/2/

Thanks
Charlie
