Good morning,
I knew Paul from when his dad had the local butchers shop in Heswall on The Wirral. I remember him joining the Coldstream Guards, but the reason I am posting this is that there seems to be a digit missing from his regimental number on the entry above. My number started 2393 and I enlisted at about the same time so perhaps it could be a 9 or a 3.
