Looking for information on Harold Sydney Cleary , born in Australia in 1892, went to
WW1 and went to Officers Training in England and was still in England in 1926 after serving in France. Anyone knowing anything about him could they please contact me. He was my father's younger brother, and though he would be dead now,
wondered if anyone knew of him. Myra King, Australia.
