His birth was registered in the Hendon, Middlesex District, first quarter of 1893.

There is a probate record for him - 1919

MARTIN Julkes Steinmetz of 3, Glenavan Terrace, Crow Road, Partick, Glasgow died 15 December 1918 at Port Amelia, East Africa. Confirmation of Joseph Martin, Officer Customs and Excise. Sealed London 2 August.

His medal index card gives first theatre of war as 'E. African Force', and date of entry as 14.11.17.

His father was J. Martin Esq., 36, Washington Street, Glasgow.

He was commissioned as as a Lieutenant on August 9th 1917 as a member of a contingent from Glasgow University O.T.C.


He was promoted Captain on August 9th 1918

Army List has him as a RAMC Temporary Captain much earlier - 28th December 1915.

Can't seem to find his service record which is shame - any advice ?

Anywhere I could get a photo of him either via East Africa Force or via RAMC Officers ?
