I am trying to locate any information on my Grandfather who fought in WW1 at the Somme (Pictured on left of attached photo). I know he was a gunner in the Royal Field Artillery and served with the 3rd South Midland Brigade (which I understand became the 242 Brigade). I have his medal roll card but have tried to search the absent voters list but have found no results. I wonder if these exist or were destroyed as I know some are. Or if there is any other sources of ueseful information that would help track down his movements in the war. Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks for you help! Can you suggest any other sources I could research?

Thank you very much for the link! I seemed to draw a blank when I searched on Ancestry so I can only presume that no records for him exist?
Much appreciated though.
