Please create 37/1432 Cpl Frederick Arthur Eustace Royal West Kent Regiment

He appears on NZ WW1 Soldiers Transcription as the above, which seems slightly unusual to me.

https://search.livesofthefirstworldwar.org/record?id=anz%2fdwilson_nzww1%2f77968

He is also listed as Royal West Kent Regiment 2Lt on the Bedford Modern School Forces Served 124 - 18 List. He was at Bedford Modern School 1899 - 1902.

Your help is much appreciated.

Regards,

Alex

        Hi Alex ...

        I found this Life Story on Lives ... https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1734914

        Checking the address on the Medal Index Card image - currently free to access on Ancestry - the address matches the one on the NZ WW1 Soldiers Transcription.

        So I think that must be your man.

        He's Royal Engineers rather than Royal West Kent, but I'll leave you to sort out that discrepancy :-)

        I am able to confirm that he was born in 1892, birth place Japan, and appears on the 1901 Census for Bedford - the 1901 Census corresponds with his dates at School in Bedford.

        Your help etc.

        Alex
