Driver 28554 Daniel Reynolds entered France 16th August 1914, qualifying for 1914 Clasp and Roses, plus Squeak and Wilfred. Discharged, so obviously survived...

Had to be a regular, pre 1914 Service which could fit with his age (38 when War started) and looks as if he was serving with 36 (battery?) RFA...

but...... is it him?????

Geoffs Search Engine turns up 3 casualties from the village..

001 DAY RA 81481 162ND SIEGE BTY 08/05/1917 ROYAL GARRISON ARTILLERY

002 PEDLEY EJ 52727 A COY 26TH BN 15/06/1917 ROYAL FUSILIERS

003 WAGSTAFF CE 551266 3841 16TH BN 01/07/1916 LONDON REGIMENT (QUEEN'S WESTMINSTER RIFLES)

A Daniel Reynolds died 1st Qtr 1952, registered in Bedford, aged 76. Birth registered 4th Qtr 1875 in St Neots. Marriage 3rd Qtr 1900 registered St Neots..

No sign of any surviving records so far...

Hi Kevin

The marriage and death are correct.

In 1901 he worked as a carrier and had previously been a farm worker.

I think the information you have found could well be him.

He remained either in pertenhall or one of the surrounding villages all his life(the exception being the war period).

I might have a look on 1911 census and see if hes possibly in the army,if based at home.

And no service/pension record exists?

thanks shane
