WW1 servicemen - an update

No, not an update to the website yet, but here's why....

My list of Wing's WW1 servicemen on the website had around 125 men. My offline list of Wing's WW1 servicemen currently has around 360. As I've said before, I may be some time researching.

I have around 20 pairs of men where their names are similar. Some of these will be because they are, in fact, the same man, so my next step is to look specifically at these pairs to see if I can conclusively prove they are the same man and therefore combine their records, or alternatively conclusively prove they are not the same man so I can plough on researching them both. Guess which outcome I'm hoping for?
