Lookup for soldiers from WW1 and WW2
« on: Saturday 22 January 05 21:00 GMT (UK) »
I would really appreciate a look up for the following soldiers

1WW:

John A Daniel of King's Shropshire Light infantry d 1916

2WW:

Ambrose W Bowen b Hereford 1920. I know nothing about him, not even sure if he died during the war, but wondered if it would be possible to check on the cd.

Thank you very much  :)

Thanks a lot for that. I was hoping that the cds of soldiers from the wars might provide extra info for John Daniel other than that on the commonwealth site. I'm pleased to say that's not my Bowen (not often I'm pleased not to find someone! You know what I mean!)
