    This was my was my great great great grandfather. My great mans father. I’ve just found this for her. She’s over the moon that I’ve found information about her father. This has made her so happy

    Hi Casualty Cards indicate that he was killed when the R.M.S. “Laconia” was sunk.
    Confusing !!

      Hi Graeme.
      I have just looked up his casualty card and service card, you’re correct they both say RMS Laconia. What makes it even more confusing is that on his service card it shows him as Bomb Disposal then next entry puts him into 135 Excavation Company. Casualty card says 135 crossed out then 1 BD. If he was bd at the time I would have expected to see more BD Casualties. Will re look at this entry
