Thanks Jebber, and yes, you did indeed answer my question, but as there were two people called Harry Giles, born quite close to one another at roughly the same time, and who both served in the Army, I just wanted to check with jim1 that the person who served in the Coldstreams was definitely 'my' Harry Giles.
