Walter Cundy 11th batt Essex regiment No.15349
Please set up a life story for Walter. His three brothers and three brothers in law are already set up on the site and his regimental records are in the records database. He enlisted at Colchester on October 19th at Colchester.
Thank you. That completes the family

Hi Mary, Walter's life story has been created here https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7700579
Having read the Essex regiment records for Walter Cundy, it I obvious that he enlisted in October 1914 but was discharged in December as being unfit for service. Presumably that means he had no medals, which is why he cannot be found on this site.
Would appreciate it if this soldier could be added before the March deadline. He is in the forces records with regimental details as above, but as yet has not appeared in the medals records here on IWM website, nor has he had a life set up.
Walter Cundy can be found via the Records tab on the Lives dashboard where there is a British Army Records transcription/document image fron Army Pensions Claims giving the information in the title. ( Family evidence is available in 1911 Census for Nayland with Wissington, Suffolk which matches identity details in the Army records). .
