Would any one have any information on Philip Breda Van Der Byl, he was a 2/Lt in the Royal Garrison Artillery, went to France 1915. He then transfers to the 2/1st Warwick R.H.A. with the rank of Capt. all the information I  can find is off his medal index card, I cannot find him mentioned the 126th A.F.A. War diary ?
