You are very fortunate indeed, there is a great set of papers extant for this man in WO363, which include casualty and regimental sheets which give much detailed information and certainly do make interesting reading, so many were lost forever, as a direct result of the unwelcome attention of the Luftwaffe almost eight decades ago.

many thanks for that reply. we have no information at all about williams military career before 1900 so we would really like to see those records.his medals have been missing from the family for many years.
