Still no James, though...

See my reply above - probably born in India so there is no point looking on freebmd

Another possibility is that he was known as Jim but was actually a different christian name.

Who was he married to?

Carole - need to chase down more details and I take your point over James/Jim not being his first name. Maybe another day or two, will come up with more results. Thanks, so far!.... ;)

Nanny - I found bits and pieces. I think this is him...

Sgt. Royal Horse Artillery 79th Batt. ( Also 1914-20 B.S.M. - Royal Field Artillery - Regimental Number 3410)

But no, no other records...

The 1911 on FS shows Walter as aged 30 b Ipswich and serving overseas.  Have you checked the 1911 for Bessie?

Carole - I found Harry, thanks. Uncle Jim is definitely 'Gladwell' - unless cousin tells me different! Cousins mother is my side of the family, so no 'Jim' there!..... :)
As you said, probably born in India.

Oh Dear! ...Finally, someone on that side of the family has come up with the answer!

...Harry Albert is the elusive 'Jim'!

I have no idea how it came about, or why he was called 'Jim', but the problem is solved - there is no 'James'.

Thank you all for your support!
