Remembered Today:

my illusive grandfather


Recommended Posts

he lost an arm in the war, which hospital would he be admitted to, and why are there 2 henry owens? Could he have enlisted twice? How did he get away with using a false name? Sorry for all the q's, im bewildered. Kind regards....lesley

If he lost an arm he would have got a pension (if he survived the War) and you should be able to find his papers in the National Archives under WO364/2795. If you post what you know of his service details there might be more help from the Forum.

You maybe lucky only seeing 2 Henry Owens,other names often run into hundreds !

Good hunting

Best wishes
