Is Elizabeth Brown going to be John Vallange/Vallance's future wife??  Perhaps that was what was meant rather than Elizabeth being the deceased's future wife?

It looks like he transferred to the Royal Corps of Signals which would be the regular army.  I would suggest that you consider obtaining his army records as per my reply #1.

It does cost 30 so do bear that in mind and it can take up to three to six months to receive them.

It depends on how much you wish to know about his time in the army.

Did you wish to find out anything else about Wilfrid, or just his army record?

I have tried to make it lighter but not sure if it has helped.

The family are in the 1939 register living in Hackney, London.  Use Edward to search for them.

On the probate record David's death is shown as 19th July 1941.  There is no will as it was administration only.  This is the death record as per the GRO

I'm doing guesswork here until you provide further details.

There is a death for a Wilfrid Frederick Maynard in 1980 Hounslow district.  Date of birth is given as 5th July 1907.

Is the above your Wilfred?

Welcome to Rootschat Hama  :D

Can you tell us when and where Wilfrid was born please?  As you have his army number perhaps you could put that on here as well.

Do you have his full army record or is the B200d etc all you have?

Have a look at this as it tells you how to obtain military records.  Not sure if this covers the Territorial army.

Welcome to Rootchat Doraneh  :D

Perhaps the Best Man and Chief Bridesmaid were also included as witnesses.  Do any of the witnesses names suggest that they are family members?
