I would love to know much more about my Ex-Father -in-law, (deceased in 1970) Lewis James Clinch (ex.2475 Corporal Lewis Clinch) who enlisted at Casino, New South Wales on April 26th. 1915. I believe he was in a light horse regiment (but don't know which one), and fought at Gallipoli and the Somme. On his discharge on March 20th. 1919 he was serving in the 3rd. Trench Mortar Battery. I will send photos of him at a later date.
Any details regarding his army record would be most welcome.
Here is a link to Mr Clinch's nominal roll.
Judith, have you checked out the digitised copy of his WW1 enlistment here on National Archives website?
I'm glad I could help.
I'm not sure if you have looked at the whole document - it is actually 47 pages! At the top of the screen you can see that it says page 1 of 47. It has a lot of information in there including when he was taken to hospital, etc.
Pleasure Judith! So glad you found what you were looking for.
