He had three brothers Frank b: 1886 Rochdale, Fred b:1891 Rochdale and Hefford b:1884 Rochdale.Not sure whether any of his brothers were in war but i know one of them was missing his arm.
Any help would be much apprieciated

Hi Sue,

I've searched and searched the World war one records but to no avail and without a Regiment I'm unsure what we can do next. If Harry served overseas then a MIC (Medal Index Card) will be available but the only problem is it could be one of the many Harry Mills listed.

Does any family members have ideas or clues on what Regiment he served with?

Any suggestions anyone because I'm stuck :?

Regards
Adrian
