Hello everyone

I have not been on here for a longtime hope you are all healthy happy and of course having fun I hope so :D .

My friend has asked me to put this up for her in the hope that one of the wonderful people may be able to help.

I'd like To find out what ever at I can About My grandfather's time in the army .His name was Philip James Morgan b 04/01/1895 in St George Southwark London and was married to Daisy Florence Shults. I would also Like to find out anything I can about his father James Morgan this is probably the wrong site as he was born c1856 and therefore too old to have fought in the great war.

Many thanks

Yvonne

I really hope somebody can help her

take real good care and stay warm

Thank you

Lynne

The number is NOT a Regimental number. I can't find an MIC for him though....

Hi All

I am Evie and I would like to say thank you to Lynne for starting this thread on my behalf, sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner my son had claimed the computer !

Thank you also to everyone for all your work on my behalf . I think Steve has definately found my man. I lived at 95 Fortescue road with my Grandad (Philip J Morgan) when I was a child. Steve can you tell me how I could get hold of a copy of his attestation papers please. You say that there isn't a Regimental number and you can't find an MIC - what does this mean exactly, sorry I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to all things military.

Thank you also to Mel for the census returns which included Philip and his family.

What wonderful people you all are.

Evie
