John Lee's Final Effects

Ancestry have now digitised the Register of British Soldiers' Final Effects (held at the National Army Museum) and I have found my Great-Uncle John's entry. His page has been updated accordingly.

Frederick Samuel Jones

I have posted up a new page today - that of my great-uncle Frederick Samuel Jones (my father's 'Uncle Fred')

I have very little information regarding Fred's military service, save a rather fine photo of him in uniform, but have managed to glean some biographical information from censuses, letters and migration documents.

I live in hope that one of his descendants will get in touch!
