I have found medal index cards for my grandfather, David Herbert Bouchard (b 1879), who in life simply called himself Herbert Bouchard (or sometimes, just H).
The details I have are twofold:
2nd Boer War (1899-1902) Reg. No. 2961 corporal with AOC; Roll No. W0100233 (on Ancestry and FmP). Served in Cape Colony; Orange Free State, and Transvaal; + Awarded South Africa Medal + clasp;
WWI Acting Staff Sergeant with RASC Reg No. M2183656; Roll W0372/2 225768 (on Ancestry and FmP); Victory and British Medals, Campaign Medal Cards and Silver War Badge Cards. TNA image link D1411899.
TNA offer a downloadable image link but will this tell me any more than I have found already?
Can anyone suggest where I might find some ‘colour’ to add to these bare records like his military input, what and where did those regiments operate. Ancestry sometimes have WWI Service Records that include attestation papers, etc, but not as far as I can see for this man. Maybe they just didn't survive?
I have not found any medals for this man, yet! Nor photos in uniform.
