Hi and thank you both for the information,Stephen senior was in the Liverpool Regiment and the Welsh Regiment according to his Medal Roll Card his WW1 records haven't survived so don't even know what Battalions he was in.

Will have to see if the Merchant seaman record have photos of these men, I have a few now of Great Grandad's and its amazing the family resemblences.

Thank You Col :-)
