World War One / Just the discharge details would be helpful..................
« on: Sunday 18 November 18 09:40 GMT (UK)  »
Wonder if anyone could find further information on this guy.............wife, confirmation of child/children, where he lived on discharge.........Would have been handy to have access to Fold 3 this weekend to solve this little brick wall.

I wonder if he was living in Kent after his 1915 marriage to Dorothy May Beale. Whether the discharge would mention a daughter Dorothy May Beale born 1916 Maidenhead  ???  Just looking for confirmation of those 3 little things. Have other information on him already.

UK, WWI Pension Ledgers and Index Cards says :-

Pte Harry Parker - Birth Date 1892 - Residence Place Wakefield
Military Service Region North East, England
Discharge Date 26 Sep 1917 - Service Number 17453
Regiment:   K.O.Y.L.I. (Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry)
Reference Number:   109681/H, 4/MP/No.3862

This was Harry with his parents and siblings in 1911
