Please create Sgt Wilfrid Osborn, Manchester Regiment

He is listed on the Bedford Modern School Forces Served list 14 - 18 as Manchester Regt. B. 1892, Attended BMS 1899 - 1908.

The only evidence I have been able to locate to support this are the 2 Manchester Battalion Photos on the IWM site where he is listed as W.O. Osborn. Links as follows:

Your help, as ever is appreciated.

Regards, Alex

        Hi Yvonne,
        Sorry I missed his surname - I am after Sgt Palmer W O, Wilfrid Osborn B, 1892 Eton, Bucks.

        Thanks for your help.

        Regards,

        Alex

        Alex -

        Can I please just check - you've headed your request Wilfrid Osborn and said the IWM image is W O Osborn, but I assume you mean W O Palmer, Sgt, 19486 ?

        Could you please confirm the surname you are actually looking for.

        Thanks

        Yvonne

        Hi Alex, I'm afraid that these links are not sufficient and do not show his name. A service number is really what is needed to create a life-story for him. If you know where he lived maybe you could have a look on Absent Voters' Lists. If you can find any other evidence then please do get back to us.
        Regards, Anne
