Thanks Reggie & Gwen in kent,
I appreciate the time and effort you spent in finding the names and their service
records.I myself do not have access to those records.
I had previously tried to find their given names on the army list on genes and match
them on the 1911 cencus without a great deal of success.
Regards John.
