are you sure he was a Pte-- Archives has a 11709 Percy Yates in the Manchester Reg as an acting Serjeant ? as John has said One was an alias as well.or has he two medal cards ?

or has he two medal cards ?

There are two MICs:

1) For BWM & VM to A/Sjt Percy Yates, 11709 Manchester Regt. No further details.

2) For 15 Star to Pte D Yates, 11709 Manchester Regt. Marked KiA 9.7.16 - which is the date you gave for Percy's death!

Neither are in CWGC or GRO War Deaths as far as I can see!


EDIT: Second MIC added

it may be an error on his MIC,hopefully,his SR has survived,that may clear it up.
