    • Same person?

      Are you sure that Private Daniel Lade https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5245240 and Private Daniel Lade https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2291947#timeline are not the same person?

      • No new subscriptions allowed

        It's disappointing that no new subscriptions are allowed already despite a few weeks to run until the cut off date. This prevents members from creating new communities and doing valuable research via the premium records.

        • what does it take to get a new life story put on this website with a total lack of customer support

          what does it take to get a new life story put on this website with a total lack of customer support , total shambles. You are telling ME im running out of time I requested this 6 months ago. As far as i can see this is just a money making scam for the Geniologist web site

          • A big thank you to all the IWM volunteers.

            You have been helpful, professional and efficient. You should all be very proud of yourselves for creating something very special. There are a lot of negative comments here, and I do share the frustrations of those who can't track down someone when they should be there. But don't forget the original records were hand written and many have been destroyed, so don't blame the volunteers. They can only work with what they have got, and have spent many unpaid hours helping the rest of us.

            • Addition of possibly erroneous CWGC information

              The only matching CWGC details for #2009 Private John MacDonald record him as a Second Lieutenant with a DCM:
              https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/802518/macdonald,-john/

              I have added information from the Medal Rolls and the Soldiers Effects register to his Life, with a note about contradictory information on the year of death which almost certainly was 1916:
              https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2777610

              I can see no matching reference to John MacDonald in the Citations for the DCM:
              https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/collections/ukdcmedal/?name=John_Macdonald&f-F0007CF4=Scottish+Rifles&name_x=i_psx

              There are three Second Lieutenants "J MacDonald" on the Scottish Rifles BWM/VM rolls, but none of them indicate they died.

              Should I add the CWGC and matching SDGW information with a…

              • Richard Francis Lobley (Service No: 235322)

                Richard died in 1917, and is buried at Tyne Cot. His Medal Index Card and Medal Roll confirm that he served with the 8th York and Lancaster (235322) and the Northumberland Fusiliers (6283). His grandson has inherited Richard's Memorial Plaque and his campaign medals. The campaign medals have a spelling error on the rim inscription, which has always be recognised. (Labley instead of Lobley), however the regiment inscribed on the rim is the Middx Regiment, Service Number: 14455, but there's no record of him serving with this Regiment. Do you think there was a mix up in the production of…

                • Lives Continue to be Remembered

                  Would it be possible to create some supplementary IWM site once the transfer takes place to allow the site to be dynamic rather than static?! Great work has been done to remember over the last 4 plus years but what about future research that adds to those stories? I have spent 4 years researching a particular incident and it is possible that more may be discovered in time. Should that not be made available too?

                    • In Honour of Aubrey Neville Hutchinson No 3199

                      Dear Sir

                      There is a website specifically to honour a young man, A N Hutchinson No 3199 of 2 South African Infantry , B Company. The site contains many photographs most taken on the exact centenary of his death on 15 July 1916.
                      In addition there is a listing of all 225 men of his company as well as a table of what happened to the men of B Coy who survived WW1.
                      Regards
                      D. Price.

                                      I know you are very busy but I have tried several times to reload 50877 Charles Martin Hurst's birth certificate as proof of birth on his timeline. The details add to the Facts section and to his page heading but the birth timeline does not accept it as proof. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/2021104#timeline
