2/Lt James Lewis/Louis Riley King's Liverpool - confusing middle name

Recommended Posts


Manchester schoolteacher  2/Lt James Lewis/Louis Riley of the King's Liverpool Regt is on the CWGC as Louis.

I think he was born 1894, Prestwich as Lewis and is gazetted similarly.

Confusingly his MIC is indexed as Lewis but Louis on the actual card.


Can anybody find a logical reason for this please ?




There's a few newspaper items:-
