hI/ In amongst a lot of WW1 items i bought at auction was a Death Memorial Plaque with the name Alfred Archer and various post cards and paperwork which suggests Alfred may have had a brother named Arthur,does this ring a bell with any member

Any addresses on the postcards?

Looking for a man with a fairly common name with no idea of when or where he was born etc is virtually impossible

Was the man supposed to have died as a result of involvement in WW1?

Have you done any research yourself..........on freebmd, for example?

Can you put ALL the details you have from these objects on here please?

It would be SO lovely to re-unite them with family members but I am afraid we need more than you have given us.

Any addresses on the postcards which would give us a clue to the area?

What, in fact, do they say and what details are on the plaque ??
