65501 Pte Bertie Bland MGC

I am trying to discover if Pte Bertie Bland of the Machine Gun Corps previously served with the Middlesex Regiment. I have pictures of a soldier in both uniforms. It appears to be the same man but I would like to be sure. Could somebody please check Ancestry to see if his service papers have survived?

Thank you.

Nothing on his MIC relating to Middlesex Regiment.

Will check Ancestry.

Ellie,

thank you for the copy of the Medal Index Card. I am hoping that the service papers have survived and will reveal a Middlesex Regiment connection. Here are the two photographs. I am convinced that they are the same man.

Simon.
