Alfred Louis Belcher

Postby Tril » Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:46 am

Hello. I hope someone here can help me find information about my father, Alfred Louis Belcher. I would especially like to know when and where in England he was born and the names of his parents.

He was a corporal in the 2nd Worcestershire Regiment in India and Africa during WWII. His number: 5250093.

He married Kate Helen Clarke in India in 1940.

I have an affidavit that gives the following information:

“Alfred Louis Belcher. Race: White. Nationality: British. Born in England; date of birth undetermined. Died at Asmire, Eretrea, 1 July 1942, of wounds received as the result of enemy action. Photo attached.”

He was buried in Alexandria, Egypt.

The only other information I have about my father is that he had a sister named Elsie whose married surname was Moore, and another relative, possibly a brother, named Frank Belcher. Both Elsie and Frank lived in England during WWII.

Thank you for any information you can provide.
