James (Jimmy) Rowan

Service Number:
Date of Birth: 1898
Date of Death: 1987

There is no service record for Jimmy, and unfortunately, he did not show us his cap badge in the picture. What we can tell from his uniform is that it is of early issue, so he clearly joined up as soon as he could. At the end of 1914 he would have been 16. Recruits were supposed to be 18 years of age, although many were younger. Did he lie about his age?
