List all the waifs and strays you discover here, and perhaps we can find them a home.

  1. BALLINGER/BULLINGER, George c1889 - WW1

    This man joined the Army in 1911 as George MARSHALL (and the reference from his employer is for MARSHALL), but he is noted as having married in the name of George BALLINGER/BULLINGER. His papers are filed under MARSHALL in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363): George BALLINGER/BULLINGER married...

  4. GRONWALL, Frederick b c1880 - brother?

    This man's BROTHER enlisted with the Middlesex Regiment in 1915 as FREDERICK ARTHUR MARSHALL, and so the papers are filed in the MAR section of the WW1 Service Records (WO 363). His papers are littered with the note ALIAS GRONWALL, F - but sadly there are no pages to show the exact name/reasoning. ...
