    Hi Henk
    I found a William Doke ,26, registered at Liverpool N. I found a William S C Ford,20, at Surrey S E (?Kenley), Cyril P Williams,26, at Bury St Edmunds( close to Honnington) and Stanley Worrell,22,at Worthing, Frank A C Holdaway,25,at Bury St Edmunds,and William J Tanner,28, at Croydon. You have George W L Dudley but I could only find a William G L Dudley,20, registered at Bury St Edmunds.
    Regards
    Dick

    Hi Again
    There is a Richard G Jones,25, registered at Bury St Edmunds as is Frederick L Larkin,23.
    Ronald P Warner,25, is registered at Grantham which would make him a possibility for the Oxford at Barkston
    Regards
    Dick

    Thanks Dick for this valuable info.
    Don't know which initials for DUDLEY - 1182877 are correct. CWGC has - like in my files - George William Leslie DUDLEY, buried Chelmarsh (St.Peter) Churchyard.
    Regards,
    Henk.
