Hi

I found a robert clapham on the Medal Index cards Reg No 41971 He served in the 12th Battalion Manchester's B coy and was entitled to the Victory and British medals. He was discharge on the 14/02/19 with a war pension because of a SGW to his left arm. There are 9 pages of his pension records on Ancestry.

There is an address of Mossbrook Farm M/C on the pension records.
Also in 1918 he was aged 40
