Does anybody known whether this person survived the War or not

This is really very, very minimalistic and extremely challenging for us to use.

= Please tell us what you already know about him.

And have you looked on the CWGC website?

I do not have anything on the person at all - apart from being mentioned on War Diary or Intelligence Summary on 28 Jul 1917 when he was injured and possibly brought back by  L/Cpl Daniel Elliott who received the Military Medal for his actions

Which one?

Have seen your other thread on ELLIOTT - are you suggesting Essex Regiment? My error I now see a different Elliott

Would you be kind enough to acknowledge  the numerous (25?) responses on your Daniel Elliott thread before requesting us to embark on a new one?

Fair point Charlie.

Make that two more threads.

Ray - Without wanting to seem unhelpful, acknowledgements and thanks are certainly a good way to get further free info out of GWF and are much appreciated.

Being new to this site did not know you had to acknowledge every reply - although have now thanked everybody who has submitted information so that I may update my family tree information

That's not very apologetic, actually quite defensive - some might perhaps think offensive!

Not sure that is a good approach to getting free info  [much of which comes from paid for sources].

You don't have to acknowledge/thank every post but occasionly it does help - and is good etiquette/good manners, which I hope you have.

I'm sorry if you took offence - I was not trying to offend anybody, I just have not acknowledged every reply, just some

You will have seen on page 2 of your thread 'Daniel Elliott MM' that forum member worthington ( @worthington ) thinks 2/Lt Carr is G A Carr and included a photo:

Thank you - this is getting more interesting from the information that I have now, hope to be able to fill in some details that I am missing with help!

So it seems (from the link above) that he was T/Lt, which is I presume Temp. Lt - again I presume there were no other officers available to fulfil the duties?

Thanks for that information - was wondering how he became a 2/Lt, but as described during war situations more commissions (in theatre) were given to people
