Hi All

I am looking for any help or suggestions anyone might have, i have found an unknown member of my family and am looking to trace him, can anyone identify the uniform and cap badge he is wearing? bit of a long shot i know....... more than likely would have been an Irish Regiment

thank you

Not wearing that uniform, do you have any other names to go on? A quick search of the MICs on ancestry only gives a handful of 'Carrig's' and alas none with the South Staffordshires, this may suggest that he didn't serve overseas on so didn't qualify for medal entitlement.
