'Come across' in what way?

What are you looking for?

If you want service history, each set of records will cost you £30.00 See my thread - below this one - with details of where to apply

It appears that you must have asked before about Richard Gearing, as I've previously accessed the 1939 register for him and his family

I may well have advised you that Richard is in five GR trees apart from yours, and suggested that you try to make contact.......................

THANKS - it was not me who applied before

In that case, smeone else on GR must have asked, so trying to make contact with people who have him in their trees may prove fruitful

Good luck

Don't know if you want non-military info about Richard
