Kristen, please ignore my last comment. I see Frank Abbott Wood has 2 Lifestories - 4849034 & 5802361. He was definitely born 21 Jan 1895 so I will add my information to Lifestory 4849034 then ask for them to be merged.
Apologies again, Cynthia
Kristen. Re. my original post 13 Sept 2016. Could you clarfify Lt Frank Abbott Wood. Is he also #832411 Frank A Wood C.E.F but was later commissioned & when he died was officially still with 3rd Reserve Bn. Canadian Infantry, but seconded to Royal Flying Corps? If so I will add some information, but if not, please could you create a Lifestory for Lt Frank Abbott Wood died 4 Jan 1918 (CWGC)
Thank you Cynthia Budd
Thank you Kristen, this is helpful. Cynthia
Excellent Cynthia, glad to be of help. Yes, I've had the same frustrations with service numbers -- my new rule of thumb when searching by service number is to add an asterisk at the beginning, and then any prefixes that exist won't muddle up the search effort. I'm sure you'll enjoy adding to these stories!
Thank you very much Kristen, I will add the information I have on these men shortly. Sorry I missed the ones already on Lives. I try to search both name & service number but I now realise if I don't use the exact Service No you have eg those with prefixes & forward slashes I don't get a result. Edward Crack Lifestory 998652 is a mistake on the Medal Card, all other records have him as Edgar (Award Rolls & Pension Record) I will correct this when I upload his information. Regards Cynthia Budd. (I use my husband's email address).

Hello Paul. I've tackled part of your list and found that some of these men were already on Lives. They can sometimes be tricky to find, so it's a good idea to search in a variety of ways, such as service number or regiment etc. I'll list their pages below, along with the newly created life stories, and finish the rest of your requests shortly. I hope this is helpful.
