I've been trying to Tom, but for some reason Photobucket or Flickr wont allow me to upload the image - I've moved to Windows 7 and have saved the jpeg image as normal and it's showing on my system, but just won't work - is there anyone else out there who can possibly post it?

He has 2 MICs, one as O'Halloran and one as Nevels, but both marked "Ident." with each other. It's clear from the Nevels card that he didn;t die, but was discharged to Army Reserve Z on 21/4/19.

He must have been thought to have died at one stage, because his name is still inscribed on the Doiran Memorial, but AFAIK it is set for deletion whenever the memorial is renovated. He has already been removed from the database.

I don't know the story behind his disappearance or his name-change, unfortunately!

Here's his name on the Doiran Memorial:

EDIT: There are about 60 names on the Doiran Memorial that are due to be deleted, but mostly because the men were found to be buried elsewhere.

There seems to be one great story in there somewhere if we could only find it. Many thanks for everything everyone. I could not have done it alone.

Kindest regards and thanks again.

Someone looked for his records in 1943 - wonder what that was all about??

As you say, probably one interesting story, wonder if it'll ever come to light.

Glad everyone was able to upload the MIC, I've sorted out my difficulties with it, an Ancestry incompatability problem with Windows 7!!

Wouldn't you just love to know the story? I know I certainly would.

Thanks again to everyone.

Kind regards.

The 1943 entry could be something as simple as re-claimed medals due to theft or loss during WW2? ;)

I had a quick look at the Irish Census and here are no Nevels in Ireland in it.

That says he was born In Middlesex, not County Clare, another cul-de-sac for us I'm afraid.

Is it possible to find out which names are to be removed from the Doiran Memorial ?

Thank you

Tom,

If his name is on the Doiran Memorial and you can't find find it in the database then that suggests his name has been removed from the database - possibly as a consequence of not actually having died.

In this case you need to contact the CWGC direct and ask them why there is a discrepancy. If they have deliberately removed his name then hopefully they should have a record as to why.

Best wishes.

Andy.

I have that Thomas O'Halloran, he is from the same county but a different man.

This is he;

O’HALLORAN, THOMAS. Rank: Guardsman. Regiment or Service: Scots Guards. Unit;1st Battalion. Date of Death:11-November-1914. Age at Death,.

Service No:6607. Born in Ennis, County Clare. Enlisted in Edinburgh while living in Kildysart, County Limerick. Killed in Action. Grave or Memorial Reference: Panel 11. Memorial: Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial in Belgium.

This is the man I am trying to nail down;

O’HALORAN, THOMAS. Rank: Pte. Regiment or Service: Connaught Rangers.

Unit;5th Battalion. Date of Death:30-November-1915. Age at Death,. Service No:6137. Born in Kilkee, County Clare. Enlisted in Kilrush while living in Moyasta, County Clare. Killed in Action in Salonika

Just got back home,and I know you have the answer but the OHalloran I quoted is your 30-11-1915 man not the Scots Guard. Ralph.
