Edward Walter Comyn

https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/914958 should be the primary, not

77314 William Henry Winder / W H James – an alias with two Life Stories?

https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2578797 although named Winder has the medal card for W H James, the marriage certificate shows an admitted alias

https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4827223 has the medal card for William Henry Winder

127049 Patrick McDonald

https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2779576 seeded from the Medal Card and
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/6596456 from the RAF Airmen, appear to be the same man – presumably you’ll have a lot of that

9928 E H Tacon appears three times although I can only find one M.M.:

https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5156285
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5156286

though whether he’s Ernest Herbert or Edward Herbert I have no idea, as Birmingham doesn’t feature in either of them….

    Thanks, Yvonne - I spotted Winder alias James doing something totally unrelated - I've got a couple of aliases in one of my communities so I'll check again to see how many medla index cards they have. If I recall correctly, I think I got 3,000 odd matches when I typed 'ALIAS' into the CWGC search; there were clearly a lot of them about.

    Thanks for the J E Capper photo; I'm trying to add them where I can. It's quite cheering to come across Lives where there has been some activity, as so many are going to be impossible to track down where there are hundreds of options to match initials.

    best regards, and thanks again,

    Guy

    Hi Guy ...

    All these merges have now been done for you.

    I've sent you a Lives Mail message about Winder alias James ... hope it makes sense ... the intention is that a search on either name will find him, but the record in his declared real name is the primary one.

    Also ... I found an IWM photo of J E Capper, so I've added that to his Life Story for you.

    Yvonne (IWM Volunteer)
