His M.I.C shows entry (2b) Balkans on 12/06/15
His WO343 ( burnt records) give his name on the Casualty Form as Fairley. There is an accompanying letter from the O/I 52nd Lowland Division about the loss of Battalion paperwork in the Gretna train crash, and that a new Nominal Roll had to be made. The soldier signed his incorrect entry, and the mistake was overlooked.
