Having seen some of the magic worked on here with partial details I thought I would make it easy for you by full service number and name.
I know from the certificate he served 1908 to 1930 in the Gordon Highlanders.
That's as much as I know about his service.
There was a family story that he was captured at Mons in August 1914 and spent the rest of the war as a POW.
Any information would be gratefully received.
As to the photo, is that the usual 1914, War and Victory medals?
Nice good conduct stripes. Looks like 4, so after 18years service but before he got his L/Cpl mentioned on the certificate.
Must have buggered up his pension to be promoted so close to his 22 year point!
