Not military records, but in 1911, if he is married to Isabella, he is William Henry Race.

Could someone with Ancestry please look for William H Race born 1863 give or take 2/3 years in Auckland, Country Durham. Was at home in 1891 but gave occupation as private in 8th Hussars. Don't know what H is for. Thank you.
