As Thomas and William fought and died in WW1, their records are available via Ancestry and/or FindMyPast.  AND I've just sent you the images for William.

ADDED:

I don't think that Thomas's records survived.



Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Thank you.  I got them.
I'm so proud of my great uncle's.
It's nice to put a face to a name. 
I'm going to treasure  everything I've got with all the wonderful help I've got.

Thank you so very much.
