Well, Stanley Thomas Coney was certainly underage for WW1. On FreeBMD a birth of Stanley Thomas Coney is registered in June 1900, which means that he was only 14 at the outbreak of war.

From his MiC, what medals was he awarded? If he was awarded the BWM and VM it means that he actually got overseas (or embarked for overseas) and then was detected as being underage.

If no BWM and VM it means he was discharged without leaving the U.K.

Thankyou for your reply..yes Stanley was too young ,the story goes his Mother reported him to the HQ and he was discharged.His mic shows Badge 30/11/16 3625 b/ag10.ineligble under age.Seems he wasent put off and joined later,I was trying to get his records but live too far away to visit kew and a research is too costly.
