Paul

I'm not sure what other information you want - do you want to go forward of backwards?  Both parents had very large families so chasing up siblings might take a while  ;D

Do you have any idea how I could find out about his time in the war ?

There are quite a few online sources:

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/first-world-war/centenary-digitised-records/

https://tinyurl.com/yc7o6hp8

https://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/world-war-1

The last two are pay sites.

I'll poke around and see what I can find. You might be lucky and find his record but many were destroyed - my grandfather's and uncles' were. there could be a medal card.

Can't find any full records for him so far but there are a number of David M Henderson listed in the WW1 medals listings. It's difficult to identify which one he might be. Do you know which regiment/s he served in?
