Thank you Gortonboy for posting the service card of my Gt. Uncle William. It gives me a profile of how young and slight he was.

Thank you Neale for posting the National Archive record. It has been  journey for me piecing together what my grandfather and his five brothers did during their time in the British Army and Navy. Of the six boys William(this post) died at sea. John unfortunately deserted from his regiment in 1893. Edward died 12 April 1915 in Belgium, my grandfather was injured an luckily returned home as did George and Richard.
