Hi

As you have his regiment number and attestation papers, you can order his service record. I did this for my great great uncle who was with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in WW1, his record was about 70 pages long and cost me €25 approximatley, well worth it!

If you check out this link it will guide you to where you order:-

I've never had to pay to see these attestation forms.

Do you mean what is on this Ancestry database?

If so then I believe it to be the attestation papers as per link one. Even though my membership doesn't cover it I found it useful in searching a place name (in the birth location or residence or keyword), which gives the soldiers name, which you can then go to the first link site. It may return a few hits but you know that one of them will have your placename.

Edit

EG Peterbo* brings up 1900+. Bit of a bummer if there is a similar placename in Canada but there weren't many of my Welsh ones!

Hi mnol, that sounds great. I've recently ordered the full service records for 2 of my great-grand uncles. Can I ask you how long it was before you received your order?

Kind regards.
