Sometimes a War Related Question is unanswerable. One of the best sites in general is RootsChat. One of the hardest questions of mine  involved a extremely distant family of mine in England, South Africa,  Australia and later British Guiana. The South African Roots Chatters did the impossible.

Another involved thee WW1 soldiers killed on Christmas Day. I had thought they had been careless but no they were hit in a dugout by a German shell.

Always try RootsChat first.

Thanks guys. Think I managed to find all the available records between Ancestry and Find My Past.
To be fair I haven't had too many messages from the Forces War Site.

Good warning Colin thanks. It's the same with other pay sites if you forget to cancel you get stung for another month's subs.

Barryd I agree with you about RootsChat and it only costs you a Thank You.
