I can only find 1 document on Ancestry and War heros about my great grandfather.
He lost his arm in WW2 in France..From what I understand it was amputated by the Germans, he survived the war.
William Marcus Drewett
Connaught Rangers, Royal Munster Fusiliers , I belive the 3rd Battalion, from another thread I came across on this forum.
Regimental Number 4872, 14055
Born - 2 Nov 1895 (Battersea, London)
Died 8 Aprl 1970 (Wandsworth, London)
This is the only document I can find on Ancestry -----------> British Army WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920 Record for William M Drewett (could anyone explain what medals he recieved on that document? I've done some reading, it's all v.new to me..!!)
Would anyone be able to see if they can find any more information? documents?
Or even where aprox he may of been in battle?
Thanks, in advance for any tips anyone might have. It would thrill my Nan to be able to find out some more information about her dad! Like many, he never spoke of the war
