I have found my father-in-law through the military service records for ww1. but cannot find any information on him either before or after the war. His name was Bernard Nuttall d.o.b. 7 june 1895. He enlisted in Aug 1914 at Albert Park Victoria and we know he stayed on in Australia after the first ww for some time returning to the u.k. only because his mother was very ill. He spoke very rarely of his time in Australia or the war only saying he left England by working on a ship and when he reached Australia he left and didn't go home so we are wondering if this could be why we can't find anything before the war. but hopefully he should appear somewhere in records after he was demobbed. Could you give mw any clues as to where to look next? Thanks.
