Hi there

Hopefully  someone will be able to help me

Been looking for a relative for a number of years and keep checking every now and then . I noticed on my ancestry his name come up on the passenger list of Fremantle Western Australia 1897-1963 but I do not have a world 🌍 account

His name is Sidney John Downe . He was born 1875 Devon .

Hoping  someone has copy so I can finally confirm where he went to from England

Kind Regards

World War One / Service record for William Richard Welch from portsmoth
« on: Saturday 02 July 16 19:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi all

I been reading my great uncles letters from the front line.  Which makes harrowing reading to see what he went through along with his battle diary. He was killed 30 March 1917 from a battle on 29th in Iraq which he was wounded. His service record we think was destroyed in a bomb but noticed from his death page that before he was in 5th be Wiltshire. He had different service number and was in Hampshire regiment. Would this be anotjer service record or were they put together. And how Can I find out when he joined the service.  He died age 23 his name.William Richard Welch from.portsmoth. Found his medal card and soldiers personal effects to record
