Soldiers Died Great War COMPLETED
« on: Sunday 27 April 08 22:38 BST (UK) »
Am proof-reading pages for a book on WWI and proofs have to go to printer early tomorrow morning but I've come across a problem which needs sorting.

S/21467 Private Robert HENRY
1st Bn Gordon Highlanders
KIA 12-4-1918

born 16-4-1899

need enlistment date and place (Stirling?)
One source gives him enlisting at 'start of war' but he was only 15 then.

Could someone please look him up quickly and let me know so I can correct entry before the book gets printed?

Many thanks.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
