For flaggy delf: Apologies as I have misread the date
of birth, reading it as 17th instead of 27th.
The information was supplied on a letter from the Ministry
of Defence in 1995 in response to an enquiry for Hance Cain's military service details - sent to a Mr. N. Cain
of Blaby, Leicestershire but for the next-of-kin (who had
to apply) it was a Mr. J. Cain of Northolt, Middlesex.
This was, of course, long before records were put online
and one had to write to the MoD for details.
The service record has suffered burnt damage, as did many, as a result of storage being bombed in WW2 but is readable in parts.
