Christmas Spooner - help finding his MIC please
« on: Monday 13 November 17 17:50 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,

I have searched Ancestry and The National Archives and cannot find the MIC for Christmas Spooner, I have found his service records and I know he survived the war.

Here's what I know.

Christmas Spooner (no middle name) was born on 25th December 1883 Michaelstone-y-Fedw, Monmouthshire, Wales.

He was a Sapper in B Coy 3rd RB Royal Engineers, regimental number 113996.  He enlisted on 3rd September 1915 for the duration of the war.  He served in Mesopotamia.

He had previously served as a Private in the 1/1st Glamorganshire Yeomanry (22 Feb 1910 - 27 Aug 1915. Regimental No. 1089).

I have searched by christian name only, surname only, regimental number - nothing comes up!

Thanks in advance for any help.

Can't see him either. Accidentally left off possibly or maybe requested not to be included on the Roll.

Thanks for looking Jim, I didn't realise they could request to be left off the Roll.  At least I am lucky enough to have his service records.

Glad it's not just me then, 760 Medal Index Cards on Ancestry and he ain't in them  :( I had a trawl through Find My Past on the off chance and nothing there as well.

Thanks Frank for your trawling, I've done lots of trawling too  ;D.  I thought with an unusual name like that he would be easy to find.
