If so, would be grateful to hear.

Alan Greveson kindly helped me with some information about my grandfather, Edward Richard Borthwick (RFA T 805970 Gnr). Since then I found a record of one of his woundings dated 25/6/1918. It states that he was transferred from the 64th Field Ambulance to No. 30 Ambulance Train. His regiment was the RFA, 122nd Brigade, C Battery 38th Division.
I have tried to find some information about where this might have taken place but without any luck. Perhaps someone on the forum with a knowledge of either the RFA or RAMC may be able to help.
Many thanks,
Ian

Hi, I am trying to find out a little more about my grandfather Ralph Houghton. He was a gunner with 66 Company Royal Garrison Artillery in Port Royal, Jamaica. The 1911 census shows him as a 24 year old single man. Is there any other information on my grandfather please?

Such a shame Alan no longer on this site he has helped me so much over the years. Can anyone help me on this please. When my mother died she left me a few bits of which one was a Medal which i cant find out much about it. This person is not even on my Tree but he must be part of the Family otherwise why would she have had it. I should explain her maiden name was Bartlett and she married a Nicholls. This brown Medal says The Great War for civilisation 1914-1919 on the edge of the coin it says :
G S 20486 Pte W Nicholls R. Fus. he must have belonged to my family but with whom ???? can anybody help me please.

Hi Allan,
I'm researching a man who was with the Yorkshire Regiment but was seconded to the Nigeria Regiment during the war: do you happen to know where I could go (preferably online) to get details of their activities from 1914 to 1917?
Kind regards
Chris

Hi Chris,
Alan has retired from doing research on the forum.
I was keeping Alan's name in the forum's title as a mark of respect for all the work he did, but I guess no one will believe it while Alan's name is still there, so it's now removed.
Regards, Bob.

Thanks, Bob.
I wish Alan the very best of retirements. I stumbled upon this site by accident only a few months ago and was very impressed by the help I received. It is a great shame that Alan has hung up his research microscope, he will be greatly missed, but everyone deserves time off. So best wishes, Alan, and thanks for all your help.
Chris

Alan was an absolute expert in his knowledge of WW1. He's been answering queries since (I think) 2008 and he did all this unpaid and with a great passion.
Regards, Bob.
