Hello Eden12345 and welcome to the Forum,

You might be better off starting your own thread under Soldiers ?


How about this Capt AE Cooke of the Cambridgeshire Regt. Address per Medal Index Card on Ancestry:    2, Regents Terrace, South Parade, Doncaster . Does the address look like a possibility ?




And I suspect this is the Service Record at the National Archives that matches it ?  reference   WO 374/15187 Albert Edward Cooke, Capt, Cambridgeshire Regt


Edit- Since the 5th Bn KOYLI was a 2nd Line unit, based at Doncaster 1918 I suspect the above is him. There is a 1917 newspaper article showing Lt AE Cooke Cambs Regt (TF) appointed Adjt the West Riding Volunteer Regt, temporary Capt whilst so employed, which could also be him since one of the ER Vol Bns became part of 5th KOYLI in late 1918, I think.?

I have split this into a separate topic as Charlie  suggested.
