Thanks, but i dont think this is him/ He was born in Tipperary Ireland and in 1911 he was 18 i don't think he got married untill 1922 as far as i can say. He was in manchester when he signed up?. From talking to his grandaughter She says he was a stretcher Bearer when he was wounded which could lead him to be in the RAMC?. But i dont know for sure i am just thinking Manchester regiment being that he lived in Manchester at the time
