Uniform help WW1

Postby pammy » Wed Oct 08, 2008 6:53 pm

Hi
Please can anyone help?
I'm quite new to this and I have a picture of my Grandfather in WW1 uniform but am unable to find out anything about it.
His name was William Jones (falling at the first fence!!) and he was born in Liverpool - I have birth, marriage and death but not much in between.
I would really love to know what regiment he was in, could be Signals? I have tried Ancestry but not having the regiment and with the name of Jones I am not having much luck.
If anyone can help me over this obstacle I would be grateful.
Thank you.

In the absence of a reply on this forum can I suggest you post a copy of the photograph on the Great War Forum [link=http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/]http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/[/link] as they have some very knowledgeable correspondents on uniforms.
