Can anyone tell me if it is possible to track a WW1 soldier from his service number? From his home village, I would have expected him to be Durham Light Infantry. The only photo I have suggests he was a fusilier - the nearest being the Northumberland Fusiliers. His medal card shows him to be Royal Garrison Artillery. The soldier in question is Gunner George Berry - service number 99693. Is there any way to tell which is accurate? He would have been about 19 at the start of the war and came from the Chester-le-Street area of County Durham.
