Edward Thomas Beer- Royal Flying Corps (WW1)
« on: Thursday 25 November 21 11:31 GMT (UK) »
Hi folks wonder if anyone can help me ?

I have a family member who was married to Edward Thomas beer around 1911 ,
It was suggested on another roots chat post that the photo I have of the couple , Edward is in royal flying Corps uniform?


I wonder if their is any war records or diaries that contain anything that would prove that Edward was infact within that regiment and perhaps mentions his wife Lizzie m/s simpson

Thanks

Ryan

Thank you very much this confirms my theory from my other post as the height of the man looks to be spot on according to the record
