Hi Everybody,
In the 1851 Census, Archibald was 33yrs old which makes his D.O.B approx 1818 give or take a few years, free BMD doesn't go back that far.
I really appreciate your help, it's fantastic.

Hi Everybody,

I'm looking for anybody with any information on the 6th Battalion Somerset light infantry during the great war, in particulary 1918.
I'm extremely bogged down on this subject at the moment, so any information, photographs, war diaries etc, anything would be greatly appreciated.
I'm finding it a little hard at the moment as i live in OZ.

Thanks in advance everybody.

Capt Cook was awarded the MC in this action.
Does anybody have a copy of the war diaries for this day or any photographs of the 6th Btn, or any interests or other relevant information about the 6th Btn Somerset Light Infantry or does anybody live near the regimental museum in Taunton any help would be appreciated as i live in OZ.
Thanks Smithy  ;)
