  8. Please add a life story for Shaikh Abdul Wahab Sowar, 29th Lancers (Deccan Horse)

    Sowar Shaikh Abdul Wahab was buried in the Muslim Burial Ground in Woking before being transfered to Brookwood cemetery. The burial ground was recently featured in a BBC programme which inspired me to search for the original service men buried in the ground.
    I can find him on the CWGC website
    http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/4017164/SHAIKH%20ABDUL%20WAHAB

    and on the British Legion's website, "Every Man Rembered"

    http://www.everymanremembered.org/profiles/soldier/4017164/

    but I cannot find him on this website and I would like to make a community for these men.
    His service number was 2278 and he died on the 16th July 1915.
    Thanks

  9. Please merge Charles William Gillett WR256769.

  11. Please add a life story for Alfred Charles Moist Coldstream Guards SN 25389

    I can't find a life story for Guardsman Alfred Charles Moist Coldstream Guards SN 25389 died 28 Aug 1919. He is buried in a CWGC Grave and is considered to be a casualty of War even though he died after the end of the war. He does not seem to have a medal card, because I don't think he saw service being injured in 1918 while in the UK.

  14. George Frederick Dutch- Conscientious Objector- features in IWM collections but not on LotFWW

    Currently, I don't think that there is a life story profile for George Frederick Dutch on LotFWW.

    Material on Dutch has been made available by the IWM for FWW Centenary partners as free downloadable resources.

    Also:

    IWM collections website:
    Interview with G F Dutch, recorded 25/04/1974
    http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/80000355
    Object description
    British civilian absolutist conscientious objector imprisoned in Canterbury, Maidstone and Wandsworth Prisons and Dover, Maxton, Oil Mill and Long Hill Camps, GB, 1916-1918. Employed as relief worker in Poland, 1919

    British Army Service Records:
    British Army WWI Service Records, 1914-1920
    Record for George Frederick Dutch:
    Regiment Name: Bn East Surrey Regt
