Hi this is a real "shot in the Dark". No good information really, but just thought by chance someone may know of this person. His name is Vincent Riley. He was a Corporal in the Military police - service number 3387553. working as a dispatch rider. In 1945 he was in B2 ward at 15th Scottish General Hospital in Cairo, following an accident. in 1945 he would have been approx 25 (could be 22-27ish). If anyone recognises any of this information, please get in touch it would be great. I know that military records for WW2 are not online.I am pretty sure you cannot find hospital records either. Thanks for any help

The name isnt un-common and is listed in many peoples trees on this site all with various birth years.

Perhaps one may have a connection?

Use the search top right and enter the name,its possible to send the tree owner a message.

.If they still access the valid email used to register,

They wont need to be a paid member to reply to an already paid member.

Kay thanks. Good idea. I have just found he was from the Liverpool area so I can narrow it down a bit. Thank you
