His War Medal details are on Ancestry. Do you have a sub for that.

Thanks for suggestion. I didn't think to search on Ancestry for War service. I only ever use it for mainly census. Regarding what I presume is next of kin- down the bottom-what do you reckon- Mrs or Miss ?? Thomas

Miss M L Thomas. Does that mean anything in context of the family

I am trying to confirm that I have the correct person. My Richard Nixon Thomas was born 1896 in Sydney,NSW,Australia-son of David Brown THOMAS & Elizabeth Maud,nee NIXON. The family are in England in 1911 census. So I was hoping that the War record would say where he was born or other information to confirm. Richard had a sister Mildred b 1900 in Sydney. No others known.

The address on the medal card is 15 Lupus Street.

Just had a look at Electoral Rolls on Ancestry and in 1923 a Elizabeth Maud Thomas was recorded living at 15 Lupus Street, so it looks to be the same family.
She was also recorded as living there in 1928.

No trace of this Family on Ancestry's Inbound Passenger list 1896 to 1911, which is odd. Perhaps the records are not complete.

As he was an officer, his service records won't be on Ancestry, unless he was promoted from the ranks, in which case, his records before he was commissioned may be on there. However, his Officer file is at the National Archives

WO 339/29836
Description:

2nd Lieutenant Richard Nixon THOMAS.

The Royal Welsh Fusiliers.
