Have just sent the images Julie. I think I have got rid of most of the ones that are just blank pages.

Which images do you mean?

There are a large number of records of all sorts copied and pasted to your other thread.

If you like to PM me your email address, I can email you the many pages of the army record.


Oops, I see Kath has already offered - great.

There are about 18 pages of the record with info on them - also many blank ones.
