Dear Tim. Thanks for the reply.We are planning to go to the N.A. in a couple of weeks time so we will check this out.Just a couple of other points,do you know when medals were actually issued i.e. over 6 months/a year after WW1 or over a longer period of time?,and i've asked this before but was there a maximum age for enlisting or entering a theatre of war etc. Also to Gordon,did you have an Ada Dumbrell listed on the Census info you had? Regards both.Steve

In my experience many service medals were not issued until about 1921/22. I think the minimum enlistment age was usually 18 however many men fibbed about their age and joined up early.

Dear Tim/Gordon. Thanks for your replies.My question about enlistment was about a maximum age.Our man we are researching,Pte John Guerins was 46 in 1915.Was that considered "old" at that time?.Any thoughts welcome.Regards Steve.P.S.Thanks for the Dumbrell stuff.Right man but at this time we can't make a family connection.
