Hi ajw64

The Surrey History Centre holds records for the East Surrey Regiment see http://tinyurl.com/74da77

This site will also be of interest http://www.queensroyalsurreys.org.uk/index.html (the E.Surreys amalgamated with the The Queen's Royal Regiment (W. Surrey) in 1959 to form the Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment.)

Hope this helps

If you post a bigger pic of his medals we may be able to identify those too!

I think the War Pensions Act was 1920 - would this then exclude the BWM and VM from this photo ( and possibly the 1914 star) due to their issue dates?
