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!!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
