I have searched the AWM system without luck for my great grandfather Percy Young who according to family history served with the 8th LH in WW1. He was a farmer from Ballarat born in 1891, his parents were John Smith Young & Francis Morris. He later joined the 2nd AIF as a blacksmith with a Railway Const Co. Previous search of Army records have found his WW2 records but no info on WW1.

If anyone has access to the 8th's nominal role or other records I would appreciate it if you could look him up. Another option is that he may have enlisted under his mother's surname name of Morris. Many thanks.
