First World War Experience

Nathan enlisted sometime in 1914 – being then 38 years of age.  He was of good physical development, being 5’ 6” tall, with 6/6 vision in both eyes.  Although he had been a gardener in 1911 he had moved on to being a Cold and Hot Water Fitter

Unfortunately, no service record has survived for him and no definite medal rolls can be found either.
