I would like to thank every one who helped in my search for my Grandfather Robert Pearson.After getting know where I asked for help.Next day I found out where he was from what regiment in WW1 he was in,where he died.Since then have found where he is buried his grave and that he was awarded the Milatary Medal and it is actually on display at the regiment museum.
All in a week .thank you to everybody who helped me.
