Hi, here is the latest crop:
I have added the Medal Index Cards transcriptions to the ones I think should be the primaries.
Hugh Edmond Thellusson
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5407774 is an MiD duplicate despite having the IWM CWGC record attached
Edward Walter Comyn
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/914958 should be the primary, not
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5328355 which is an MiD duplicate, as are four others already identified
Percy Harrison Fawcett
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5330537 are MiD duplicates
John Walter Povah
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5398493 is an MiD duplicate
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.:
though whether he’s Ernest Herbert or Edward Herbert I have no idea, as Birmingham doesn’t feature in either of them….
Hudleston Noel Hedworth Williamson
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4790673 is the primary
67012 Sidney Alma Hatt
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1616078 is the primary,
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4983530 is the DCM duplicate
Walter Henry Densham
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2379360 is the primary,
Major General Sir Thompson Capper
(I declare an interest – my seat in the Sandhurst Chapel was under his memorial!)
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/708731 is the primary
Major General John Edward Capper seems to have 7 MiDs:
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/708678 is the primary,
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5327654 are the duplicates
Lieutenant Colonel A S Capper
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/708536 is the primary,
Major General Frederick Drummond Vincent Wing
https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4829169 is the primary

Sorry, Yvonne - it was 6,000 matches for 'Alias' on the CWGC website, not 3,000.

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,

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.
