In the course of going through the South Africa Roll of Honour for WW1, from tiem to time we find extra casualties.
I'm able to get service files from South Africa archives but if the casualty is a UK unit then I'm stuck for help.
We have a man that I need someone to check on me for.
Pte. George Meade, KRRC, KIA in October 1916. Presumably reg. # R/5937
He SA service card says he was MM and MID, but could only find MM LG entry.
He is not on CWGC that I can find.
Here is our entry in the SA database.
Unknown Unknown UNKNOWN CEMETERY MEADE G GEORGE Private R/5937 King's Royal Rifle Corps 2nd Bn. 1-Oct-16 31-Oct-16 0 Killed in action ref. Ancestry24.co.za & ref. South African Roll of Honour 1914-1918 M M ***Not yet accepted for War Grave Status by CWGC, need service file
I can send PDF of his service medal entitlement and MM entitlement and LG entry for his MM.
But can someone look for a death certificate and I shall gladly pay via Paypal.
