Looking for any info on my uncle and the events leading up to his death 8th April 1941, during the latter stage of the East Africa Campaign
His army No. is 3309718. He is buried at ASMARA WAR CEMETERY
My father, Stan Rumble, was a Canloan officer who served with the HLI, and was wounded in action in Normandy in June 1944.
He passed away some years ago.
I am interested in learning any information about his military service, and his career with the HLI.
Thanks very much.

I'm trying to find any information regarding a possible relative who served with the HLI during the Great War. I came across an entry on the CWGC website. As our surname is very uncommon I am wondering if we could be related.
His name is J (John?) Pitbladdo. service no; 43003.
He died on the 18th November 1916 during the assualt on Frankfurt Trench, Beaumont-Hamel, on the Somme and is buried in the Frankfurt Trench Military Cemetery Grave No; C.24. He doesn't appear to be on the "Soldiers Died in the Great War" database.
Any information or links to further searches would be appreciated.
