Recommended Posts

During , a recent clearance of a house belonging to an deceased elderly gent a set of medals have been found, family have asked me to try and find some background to the Soldier, can't seem to tie any connection to the family, any experts on Leinster Regt out there, Medal index card states he was Pte 3475 Lein Regt, then promoted 2nd Lt Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, it states he was listed a missing 22/08/18, any further info much appreciated.
