The above named is one of the few names on Retford War memorial that I have not been able to trace any information on e.g CWGC. Any help out there please.

No GW Tallents in the online medal index cards.

There's a GE Tallents, a Captain in the Lancashire Fusiliers.

Might not be British Army.

The forum is fantastic. What a fool to assume that he was in the British Forces when several of the men on the memorial fought in the AIf , CEF etc.

I feel a twit

Thansk to all
