Could SKS with access to the SDGW please lookup the following KIA.

36052, Private Alfred Stone, 17th Royal Fusiliers, KIA 24/03/1918.

The details are from the medal roll but I can't find a suitable candidate on the CWGC website.

Many thanks in advance.

Steve, that number doesn't bring up any soldier called Stone on SDGW.

There are two soldiers called Stone listed for 17th Royal Fusiliers - Lance Corporal John William Stone KIA 13.11.16 France and Flanders and Pte. Lawrence William Stone DOW 2.5.18 France and Flanders.

Thanks for the fast reply Tom, looks like I'll have to try elsewhere. Could I possibly try another one?

36930, Private Harold Milscroft, Royal Fusiliers, KIA 05/04/1918.

Again not to be found on CWGC.

According to the SDGW there are 19 entries with the surname of STONE.

None tally with that service number, there is an Alfred Ernest Stone, but he was KIA on the 03/08/16.

There is no record of Milscroft.

That doesn't mean they don't exist, I've recently carried out some research into a soldier who joined under another name.

Many thanks for the details, or lack of them ;), It definitely looks as if further research is needed on these two, aliases could be a possibility so it looks as if a service record search is called for next time I'm at the NA.

Thanks again

Steve
