Last man to identify on the Whithorn War Memorial in Wigtownshire -

THOS, W. BOYCE

I think that he is Thomas Walter Boyce, born in Whithorn in 1893. The son of James and Jane Boyce. In 1901 Jane (a widow) and her family were at 83 George Street, Whithorn and in 1911 Thomas was working on a farm just outside the town.

However the only potential military record I have is of a Thomas Walter Boyce b.1894 age 18 enisting in the Royal Artillery in 1912 and there is a Medal Card with the same service number (38082) Gunner RFA.

The place of birth is shown as Portsmouth but I cannot find a birth to match.

So is this the same man??? and did he survive the war????

I'm beginning to get lost - help please!

He re-engaged and was numbered 1001130. He was not officially discharged until July 28, 1932.

He served in India, Mediterranean and France.

Address on discharge is Brighton.

There is no reason he should be on a War Memorial.
