Felix Wall.
« on: Monday 20 November 17 00:51 GMT (UK) »
May I ask for some assistance with the above named ancestor?  He was born in Dublin in 1870, I am having a job locating him where I expected to (several of his siblings settled in Garston, Lancs) but found a likely suspect and would be grateful for some info to positively I'd him from the military records. This is what I have..Felix Wall Lancashire Fusileers / 1917 /stated year of birth -1877 /service number? 26416 / 22nd reserve bn.   The second record has one Felix Wall / Labour Corps /1919 / stated year of birth-1871 /service number? 443580 /828th (as read ) area employment Labour Corps. An address, or n.o.k would be very helpful if that's possible. Thank you....

Not totally sure what you mean here but for the avoidance of doubt there was no such thing as Irish nationality at that time. He was British.
