Help required please
to find out the battlefields areas in France in particular regarding my grandfather Patrick James Braniff from Workington, Cumbria. born 1889.
His service number was 9396 and he enlisted 5/9/1914 and was posted to number 4 depot(not sure where that depot was).
He enrolled 3 times in all up until 1940 for the final time aged 51.
He was in France 20/7/1915 - 21/2/1918,
then again 8/3/1918 - 25/12/1918
then 4/1/1940 - 18/6/1940 where he was finally discharged due to not meeting medical requirements. He was aged 51 by this time.
Can anyone please shed any light as to where his division would have gone to during the above dates?
Also, where would he have gone in Workington to enlist in the first place ?
i would appreciate any new information at all
