Its NANKERVIS, William - WW1 27139 - Army 1914 - 1917
he married a cornes and he died KIA
Ceno file for those interested

Was given award
Military Awards: Military Medal (MM)
Award Circumstances: London Gazette, 17 December 1917, p13201, Rec No 1391: For conspicuous gallantry in the field. On the 4th October east of St Julien this man went into the attack as a Company stretcher-bearer and from then until the Battalion was relieved on the 6th instant he worked ceaselessly evacuating wounded at all times and under the heaviest fire. Furthermore he was the means of saving many lives by his prompt and skillful bandaging of the wounded. His work throughout was of the very highest standard, and was carried out at great personal risk. He showed conspicuous devotion to duty and the greatest possible praise is due to him for his work, which showed he is possessed of steadfast courage, splendid endurance and cool organisation

Many thanks

« on: Friday 03 August 12 03:25 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone have an knowledge of this software..lots available but what is best.

Ideally it needs to be used to transcribe oral history recordings.
I'm wondering how we could use it..If we have a mp3 recording/Cd would it be able to transcribe?

Need help, it takes too long to listen and then type up transcriptions for a non-specialist typist!!!
