I am trying to find out any information about a soldier who survived the first world war. The name of the soldier is Thomas Henry Parker who served in the East Lancashire Regiment from 1916-July 1918 when he was discharged due to injury.

The soldiers regiment number was 27952. I have found out this information on Ancestry but the information available is very limited as I am trying to find out where this soldier would have lived when he signed up for the war in 1916. This information doesn't appear to be available.

I imagine that he was given a campaign medal & the silver war badge.

Can anyone suggest where I may be able to find anymore information other than what's available on Ancestry?

i had a look on ancestry and unfortunately the medal index card doesn't give any info that could be used to find where he came from and his service and pension records havent survived either i looked on the census and theres to many possibles to get you an answer sadly!iv looked at the silver badge rolls and he was discharged due to sickness(not seemingly enemy action!) sorry i cant be more of a help!!
