Royal Marines WW1
« on: Saturday 23 June 18 09:43 BST (UK) »
I have not had to search for Royal Marines information before but am looking for anything about George Harding of Liverpool, born 1893, believed to have been wounded at Gallipoli.  Probably a private in RMLI rather than RMA.
I am sure there must be a member here who can point me in the right direction.

Got it,but not via the opening search page.  Knowing there was a record I had to go in via a new route, for me, but all is well (even after discounting another RM of the same birth year).
Thanks again.
