Welcome to the forum.


At the National Archives there are two medal index cards (MIC) for Albert Fuggle in WW1. Both have middle names, did yours?

They are Albert Henry Fuggle (dob 1868 so I can guess we can discount him) as a merchant seaman https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D8015779

and Albert E Fuggle of the Royal Field Artillery https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D2259048


Both cards should also be available on Ancestry / FMP if you are a subscriber.


Any more information you can give us on Albert will assist the members in helping you trace his ww1 history.


Kind regards




Edit: There may be other candidates, sucjh as A J Fuggle of the East Kent Regiment https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D2259050

There is an Albert John Fuggle who was born in Tenterden Kent, dob declared as 30/1/1898 who has surviving service papers on FMP

He served in 5th Battalion East Kent Regiment. He joined on 14/2/1916. 


Your local library may have access (the record should also appear on Ancestry) or you can take out a free trial to discover more.


Good luck with your research

Think he probably is Albert John Fugle. The Buffs -Royal East Kent Regiment. There a quite a number of badly damaged service papers that David has found. One of those papers gives a date of birth of 30/1/1898 - that seems too much of a coincidence. He has several numbers 3651, 241549 and a post-war 6278024.  It wil take a while for you to decipher as some important bits of info are not showing. He clearly served overseas from 1916 to 1919. 

If you do have ancestry or fmp then we can give you some advice on interpretation.

Reading between the lines and looking at where the 5th battalion went much of the overseas service was in Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq region). I can see several refs to Basrah and Baghdad.
