    I think these Lives are for the same individual, James Milne

    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/3055049
    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/3055121

    He is #7099 J Milne on 1914 Star roll and #200503 James Milne on BWM/VM roll. Unfortunately his original service number is recorded on the BWN/VM roll as 200503. However the soldier immediately preceding him on the roll (#200502) has his original service number recorded as 7098.

    I am guessing the clerk recorded his later number 200503 in error rather than his original number 7099. It seems too much of a coincidence.

    I cannot find another J Milne on the BWM/VM roll.

    I don't think I have…

  13. Missing life story - Private Frederick Ernest Savage, 2507 2/4th Battalion Princess Charlotte of Wales's (Royal Berkshire) Regiment

    This soldier has no life story on this website, but I believe he should have his added. I make this request 100 years to the day (19th July 1916) that Pte Savage, a relative of mine, was killed in action during the Battle of Fromelles. He is buried at Laventie, La Gorgue, France.

  18. Albert Ernest Stenning

    Albert Ernest Stenning, born Hailsham 1894. The only army record I can find for him is in the Surrey Recruitment Register. Enter A Stenning, 1894, England. It gives his service number, 12383, Army Service Corp (mt) and a home address of 61 Stretton Road, Addiscombe, Croydon.
    The 1911 census confirms these details. Enter Albert Ernest Stenning, 95, Croydon.
    Please add his Life Story.
