At present there is insufficient information to identify this man specifically. We know he was on the Brigade HQ staff as at 1/1/1941 as a Batman, and was a member of 1st Tyneside Scottish, but nothing more at the moment. The entry may refer to another man with the same name, although most of them seem to have been PoWs. More family information is needed to identify him properly.
