Hi Everyone, looking for a little bit of help to decipher a document if possible... image 5, 3rd name down... link 1 below if you need the original. Trying to work out what the names are? And some of the details? Any any other information it might hold. Help much appreciated hoping to find some links 😁

I have also found another record which matches with the parents just struggling with the handwriting... Leo Bombera, whom I believe to be my grandads uncle.. just unsure of exactly what the parents names are with the handwritting? This one is on page 41 5 down on the second link.

Its been suggested that maybe some of it is Latin?

Family History Beginners Board / Serjeant Arthur George Pope and Vinzent Bombera

Hi all,

I am currently in the process of doing my family tree with the hopes of finding more information about my great grandfathers.

Few questions to ask with some possible pointers if you would all be so kind...

It's highly fascinating for me as Arthur George Pope 8200 fought and died in WW1 for the British army and my other great grandfather fought and was wounded in WW1 for the German army. I have relatives on both sides of the war which I would love to know more about.

1) military information for both? Best places to look? I have found snippets on AG Pope but have nothing for Vinzent (Vincent Bombera) where could I find things about him? Not being fluent in German does not help..

2) how do I find out more about Bombera’s in Germany? It's a very rare name with no clear origin. Vinzent was born in Nakel? Which I think is now Poland but was Prussia? My grandad Bruno was born in Berlin and said his grandmother had a pub there? But have no idea of a name or maiden name or anything... of real interest to me would be my grandads siblings. He was one of 5 but didn't let a lot of information go to us. His oldest sibling may have died after being hit by a tram? His brother moved to poland, His sister stayed in Germany and his youngest sister (had a funny face which we believe to be down syndrome) and was reported to have died from pneumonia... a victim of experimentation perhaps?? So many questions regarding that side so any German expertise would be amazing even if it was just to put names to them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
