I have moved this topic from introductions into a more suitable forum. Site member Thomo may be able to help as he has ongoing research regarding the First World War and particularly Barlick lads involved. I'm sure he may well pick up on this post.

Thanks Thomo,
Wilfred was my uncle and William H Wilkinson was my father. I have most of the information about my father,who was awarded the Military Medal for bravery in the field of battle. but would like to find out where, when, and if, Wilfred was awarded the M.M I have found some info on Ancestry UK and I know that Wilfred was wounded and spent some time in Lincoln Hospital, and was given the Silver Badge which was given to soldiers who were wounded and considered unfit for further army service. I never knew Wilfred but knew his other brothers :John Bridge and Granville who along with my father and Wilfred returned safely.

Hi Brenbridge. I must point out that the bulk of info I have on my database and the CPGW database that is loaded onto my PC, concern the casualties of WW1, this for the purpose of the book that I am compiling. However, when I have completed the WW1 casualty section I will add the names of they who fought and survived where the information can be found, to access this, having a name is helpful, but whilst thinking of this in bed in the small hours I came up with an idea, this I have just tried, and it works, eureka! So, if you could post here what you do know about your uncle and your Father, I may be able to fill in any gaps.

Thomo.
