Pte Richard Conlon KLR casualty - Help with his CWGC details


Recommended Posts

Pte Richard Conlon #4229, #241890 CWGC

I can confirm his marriage in 1912 to Margaret(nee Byrne) through Soldiers Effects, which also states father James.

The rest of his family have escaped me so far based on the age of 30 on cwgc, so dob circa. 1888.

1911 census, there's a Richard Conlon b.1885 Manchester, is this him please ?

Still hunting around, a similar soldier Norman Tate was 6th Btn KLR #4226, #241888 and deployed 7/11/15, received Star on MIC

Richard Conlon #4229, #241890 KLR did not receive the Star on his MIC
