    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5987907 is his page, if Canadian soldiers have 2 service numbers as in this case annoyingly "lives" data only captures one of them. You can see his full service records on the Canadian Archives site http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/personnel-records/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=511631

    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/497630 is his page. The medal cards rarely give full middle names

    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/269501 is his page, his middle name had been incorrectly transcribed as Jonathan. transcription errors are not uncommon unfortunately. Wildcard searches such as A* J* Beck* help to find them, also searching by number such as *969 in this case as often the CWGC misses off army number prefixes. Hope that helps

    His page is here https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/300739

    Quite often the CWGC info has not been matched to the page and so it's worth checking by surname and service number. He was listed as Frederick J Bennett 23rd Royal Fusiliers 1871. I've now added the CWGC to his page.

    Regards
    Richard

    I think this may be the page you are looking for https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/360205

    Those that served overseas in the Army are nearly all in the database (but there are a few known exceptions) as this data was sourced from the medal cards there can be discrepancies in the spelling and service details between sources.
    Regards
    Richard

    The older alternative, but legit (it's still used in some British Regiments) spelling of Serjeant is inherited from the National Archives transcriptions, and no-one really feels like updating over 400,000 records to change J to G. Perhaps IWM will correct it automatically after the project finishes but I wouldn't hold your breath.

    Some weird data problem means that Canadian Officers have been seeded as "military service" and not marked as "Canadian Expeditionary Force", a lot have since been updated by users but not all. So if you have trouble finding someone that will be why. I've just updated his page so he now shows as Canadian but he still needs his rank adding in.
    Hope that helps

    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/3600355 should be his page, many officers cards only show initials and the pages have not been updated with full names, so it'd be great if you could do it.
