    Almost certainly https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/6307450 The only Alfred William Palmer who is recorded in the medal rolls as being a Navy Telegraphist during the war. His service record shows him being paid out of HMS Acteon (a shore establishment) at the time but the individual trawlers he served on during that period aren't listed.

    Thanks for reporting, he was one of the many home service soldiers who, because he doesn't have a medal card, wasn't automatically added. A page has now been created for him here

    Hi Roxanne,
    thanks for reporting, your ancestors page is here https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/4688586
    His medal card and the CWGC only show an initial for his middle name which is probably why you couldn't find him. I have attached his service records as they appear in this system and his entry in soldiers died in the great war.
    Regards

    Thanks for reporting, I'm afraid again in this case the medal cards state they are 2 different women so can't be merged, unfortunately that doesn't help work out which one is the lady you are looking for.

    Thanks for reporting,
    In this case having looked at the preview images of the 2 cards connected with these two lifestories, they state not identical so in this case there are 2 women with the same (not uncommon) name and so can't be merged.

    If you are willing to send me a pic of his form to fifeww1@gmail.com or send me a link if it's on ancestry or findmypast, I'll take a look and see if I can spot something that would confirm it. At the moment that lifestory certainly seems the best fit. Of course if any of the brothers medals are still in the family they will be inscribed with the all important regimental numbers which makes things a lot easier.

    Fife Military Project commented  · 

    Having done a little more research it seems https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/1105265 is most likely but I can't be 100% certain. The 7th Battalion A&SH was a Territorial Unit and they recruited quite a few men from the West of Fife. There is an article in the Fifeshire Advertiser 19 June 1915 page 2 under "Fife Men Gassed" It states referring to other Lochore men that several including a George Davidson were in hospital and the Daily Record 21 June 1915 pg 6 carries the casualty lists for this man having been gassed.

    Like his brother James there are several candidates and at the moment we can't say which is the correct lifestory.
