    As Wimsey has said, Boots would have been his sickness insurance provider. The National Archives has much on the "Approved Society" system which you might want to explore after lockdown.

    I'm afraid I don't see any other reference to this man apart from the WO100 medal roll which only supplies initials.

    I take it he's not entered as a witness?
