    The one above with service history, the papers are in a really bad state but I did find a date so I don't think this is your man, it's dated 1885, but this is in with the WW1 service records.

    I selected 'search' then 'Military Records' then entered John Cattell. There are 20 on the first page but only 3 with no middle name or initial. These are:

    NAME: John Cattell
    BIRTH: year - Stafford
    MILITARY: year

    The last two might be a duplication of the same record.

    His name was definitely John with no other Christian names.

    There are no John Cattell's on the WW1 lists on Ancestry or are you looking at another country?

    started a topic Ancestry look up please

    Ancestry look up please

    I only have FMP. On ancestry a search on military records for John Cattell (no middle name) brings up 3 results. Would some kind person please look them up for me? The man I am looking for was born in 1899 in the West Bromich region.
