arboskittler Posted 19 November , 2013 Share Posted 19 November , 2013 I posted the attached photo postcard back in March to seek advice on which regiment the soldier may have belonged to in order to help with tracing possible records (thanks to FROGSMILE for offering ASC or RGA as possibilities). On the back of the photograph is a note stating "Zagazig, Egypt, 1916" I believe the photo to be of George Edward Hill (born Tetbury' Glos around 1885). Despite also trying various combinations on Ancestry (e.g. Hills, Hall. Hull) I have found nothing and I realise that not all records survived. The 1911 census has him living in Tetbury and employed as a baker. Obviously between the census date and outbreak of war, he could have moved away, got married etc which just adds to the difficulty in tracing. However, what I did find on Ancestry for a George Hill (service no. 31360) were actually records for a George Bloor! Probably nothing of a revelation to many Ancestry users but I'm now thinking that maybe my George Hill has been recorded under another name in the Ancestry interpretations.......... thus becoming a very small needle in a very large haystack. Armed with the basic details I know, do I have any chance of success checking the NA records? Cheers, Andy. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
