James Noel Francis - Guardsman
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 15:19 GMT (UK) »
 I Hope someone can help me, I am carrying out some family research in behalf of a friend.  She tells me that a relative on her motherís side served during WW2 with a Guards Regiment possibly either the Coldstream or Grenadier Guards.  All I have is James Noel Francis DOB: jan 1913 Grimsby. I am sorry for the lack of detail.  It is a long shot.
