Thanks for the information. Date of birth and attested year, could tie in to 1911 Census.

Date of birth will allow for a more detailed search.

Thanks again

Many thanks JP

Could indeed be the right Stanley Glover. Just need a link to Royal Field Artillery to confirm.

Again many thanks

Many thanks, taylov, JP, and Charlie 962

Everything for Stanley Glover now ties in. I have been looking on and off for the last 2 years with no success UNTIL NOW.

I only found his wound record on Christmas Eve.

Thanks again and a very Happy New Year to you all.

Regards.

Tony.

Tracy,

Welcome to GWF.

It's what we like to do - to help to remember and to help those who search.

If you care to provide any more info we might even find something about your GF for you too - Your choice.

After all the very quickest of searches comes up with a Gnr. Thomas C. GLOVER, 113285, Royal Field Artillery and 187272, Royal Garrison Artillery - a MIC for a British War Medal and a Victory Medal = Him perhaps??

Hi M, thank you for the welcomes. It could well be my gf! Is there a date of birth for the above Thomas C Glover.? He would have been 27 in 1914, DoB 24.10.1886. 

Stanley had 3 brothers all together, Thomas, Sidney and John. 

many thanks

Tracy

Tracy,

Thanks for replying with that info. on Thomas Chetwynd GLOVER

It's amazing how much 'traffic' has passed in the last few hours - I am here 'boosting' up the forum again so that that the gunners and genealolgists can get a fresh sight.

Wishing you luck.
