Bingo, that's my man
Apologies Dawn - duly noted.
Shaun/Seaweed - many thanks.
Interesting that there does not appear to be any WW1 MIC as family legend recalls that his ship was torpedoed and that he very nearly went down with it, after foolishly funning back into the ship to retrieve some personal effects.
Perhaps that's just a tale he conjured up....
He joined his brother and uncle in Chicago circa 1920's, never to return to Liverpool and I'm not aware that he served durring WW2.
