evening,
    I've just had a look through old emails and its the Halifax courier 2nd feb 1918, going on the time line of being out of action, he would have been gassed at ypres/passchendaele.?

I'm looking for any info be it photo or other (but mainly photos) on previous inhabitants of terra cotta
brick works cottages....

I've found the 1901 census for the mclaren's but not seen the 1911 one for the Nelsons.

thanks.

no middle name unfortunately, I agree on the rank issue which was another reason I'm doubtful its him.....
     I've tried both the RE museum and RS lot to try and see if attestation forms are still about but no joy so far......
Max I've got the sigs diary but alas him being a lowly ranker he isn't deemed worthy a mention......

there was a paper clipping from his local (ish) rag about him but his rank is sapper....

thanks for the replies.

His details as follows

-John Sutcliffe
-born 8/april/1889 in hepponstall, near Hebden bridge yorkshire.
-his wartime address was 7 beechwood view, oakville rd, charlestown, hebden bridge.
-He was married in Jan 1910.
The only info I have on his ww1 service came from a newspaper clipping from 1960 about his 50th wedding anniversary, in which it states that 'during the first world war he served in France as a despatch rider with the 66th Division of the Anzacs and was gassed.....

 I've looked into it a bit a while back and with help from a few people I may have found him
J sutcliffe, 281981 Pioneer RE...... if it is him I've a copy of his M.I.C and Silver war badge roll but no joy on any service records as I cannot tie him/his number to his home address....so it may not even be him....

how do,
   how would I go about locating (if they survived the NA bombing in ww2) his service records or even number so I can research him more?
  All I have to go on for sure is his name and address (prior to the war), he was with the 66th Div working with the anzacs, and he was gassed.  I've had no joy with absent voter registers. 
  Would attestation forms be about anywhere in either the NA or Royal engineers archives to help me positively ID/link him to a service number?

thanks
