Sadly, not much left for this particular man, born on the 23rd of April 1887 at Kirkdale, the enemy have him as been captured at Meteren on the 16th of April 1918 and then marched up to Belgium and put into the bag in Termonde.
The Red Cross show him missing the following day, I think I would go with the Hun on date.
Interesting that he was a member of one of A Companies Lewis Gun sections too.

Thanks for the clarification on the “R” I had seen that the 3rd Battalion Liverpool was a reserve battalion which was making me wonder if that was what the R stood for. Makes much more sense that it stands for Regiment.

What is confusing me is if the 3rd Battalion was stationed in the UK and Ireland how a medal for Bravery in the field can be earned.

Thanks for the Records reference, I will update if I find out more.
Many thanks everyone
