Steve & Elizabeth,

Thanks for your 'look ups'. Did you also check Percy Morris (his mothers surname) ? Yes I have searched the NAA data base and asked the question previously without luck. I am currently waiting for a couple of certificates that may help but I am not hopefull, they are long shots. I know that to enlist for WW2 he put his age back, so he may have changed his name etc to enlist in WW1, who knows ? Certainly the family history is fairly strong that he was in the LH and his brother referred to the 8th LH in a funeral notice. But, you never know, the whole lot may have been a load of porkies. My mums dad used to boast about having served at Gallipoli but he didn't enlist until 1916 !!! Thanks again.
