I've tried to find info on a George Harrison born 1895 no DOD. He enlisted in the army during the first world war in (I think) Derby. I have found his army number which is 252454 and he enlisted at Derby on 22/5/1915 and that's about all. Can anyone tell me where I can go from here please???

How does he attach to your tree? that alone may provide some clues. Did he marry his fathers name should be on the marriage cert
