I cannot help you, but do take heart if you are searching for a relative for whom you have scant details..Imagine looking for Bill BAILEY IN THE TRENCHES IN WW1...MY GRANDAD Bill BAILEY TOLD ME STORIES WHEN I WAS A CHILD,OF HIS TIME IN THE TRENCHES IN BELGIUM AS A MEDICAL ORDERLY,,THE STRANGE PART OF HIS STORY WAS THAT SEVERAL WIVES INCLUDING MY GRANDMA HAD A HOLIDAY CLOSE TO THE FIGHTING LINE...VERY IMPROBABLE, BUT TRUE,,I BEAVERED AWAY TRYING TO FIND INFO. CONCERNING SUCH A PLACE AND HAD GIVEN UP WHEN I CAME ACROSS AN ARTICLE SOMEWHERE RE THE AMBULANCE ATTENDANTS OF WW1 AND A PICTURE TAKEN OF THEIR WORK IN ACTION I HAD COPIED IT SO IT VALIDATES MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES <3MARIAN HUNT NEE CAMSEY <3
