Wow. Thanks for all that Sandra - will take a while to process that all in my brain!
I did see George's attestation papers and burial, and after looking at his battalion history, think he must have died whilst still at training camp in Canada. Interesting that his brother was also trying to enlist.

If you have an Ancestry log-in Commonwealth records are free until the end of Monday (British time).   It seems to work via ancestry.co.uk but not via ancestry.com .
