    Default Can anyone help me find this WWI soldier?

    I found this photo amongst others of old family members but I haven't a clue how he links to my family: can anyone help me find a little more about him? The writing on the back says his name is Lieut. Martin L. Daniels from the Royal Berkshire regiment, and he died in the Battle of the Somme (or lost his leg...?)

    It does say 'leg', looking at the handwriting there- the 'g' matches up to that in 'regiment'.

    How did you find him!? Do you know anything else about him? I've been trying to track him down for months!

    I still don't understand how you managed to find that out, thank you so much! That's incredibly helpful, hopefully this'll be a starting point to finding out his connection to my family!

    I can find this as I am a member of Ancestry. Costs me 107 a year.

    My other hobby is family history so it is worth it for me. Took my direct bloodline back to 1580.

    I'm very grateful, this information's helped a great deal; and I'm jealous! I've also really wanted to research my bloodline for years (I was supposed to do so this summer but I never got round to it...). Anyone with an interesting story in your bloodline at all? And, I'm sorry to ask this, only, is it possible to see any of Martin Daniels's relatives?
