Hi all,

I am trying to get some information on two soldiers from the Great War, both Bridgend, South Wales,

John William Riley born 1877 possible served in an Iish Regiment?

Timothy D Riley born 1888

These are two of six brothers who served in the Great War, one of the brothers was discharged( the the above two) and on his MIC it says D/W 1915, Any help with that most grateful also.

Thanks

SWB

Gave it a shot on NA and CWGC and there are just TOOOOOOO many. You need some more details to refine the seach.

What do you already have?

From LDS it looks like this is John William Riley 1877 Brigden, Wales

Nothing there on T. D. Riley 1888.

Hi

CWGC brings up only one T.D.Riley, 2nd Lt in Cameronians, 4 John William Rileys none of whom come from Wales, 2 J.W.Rileys one from Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Pte.4464. Give us a clue??

To make it easier are we looking for the sons of John and Mary Riley of 10 Mount Pleasant, Higher Newcastle, Aberkenfig Glamorgan, 1891 census RG12,4455,26,47?
