Any chance of a hi res scan of his cap badge.

3 William P Lambs and 7 William Lambes, but no William P or Patrick Lambe

Dressed in civvies including the great coat, need a better image of the cap badge, even then, it may not be his Cap or he may have just enlisted but could have changed Regiments prior to being posted to a War zone.

You quote a birth date, but are you saying he declared his age as 21 when he married in 1922? is the birth record definately his?

Can you recheck your source . The marriage is for a William G Lambe Dec qtr 1922 to Daisy Wicks. If he was 21 as you say he can't have been born in 1897.

The death in Mar qtr 1973 is a William Lamb ( No E ) born 8 May 1896 age at death 76.

His birth appears to be recorded in Middlesborough Jun qtr 1896.

Could the coat be hiding Hospital Blue beneath it?
