hi everyone looking for info on

Edwin james porter grenadier guards number 14317

found him on the 1911 census 1st battalion gg

age 16

found his medal card shows him land in france 19/10/14

he got married in 1919

Electoral Rolls shows him still public quarters in 1932

so a guessing he served for 20 plus years possibly more

would like to know if his is mentioned in battalion history

think his army number is around mid 1909?

any more info would be great

I think that Army Records for men serving after the Great War are available from the respective Guards archives.

May take a while but no doubt there are some Pals who might be able to give you info on what 1st Bn G G were doing in WW1, if you haven't Googled that for yourself.

Do you know what rank he attained during his long career?

unlikely he was mentioned unless was decorated - not familiar with GG records but the going rate for Coldstream papers is £33 Im told

Hey James, I believe that the Edwin J Porter you’re referring to is my Great Great Grandfather and would like to know what information you have about him! Feel free to PM me.
