    Thanks guys

    This is more then I managed to find
    Is there a tip for search gazette entries

    Now to confirm his medal entitlement


  7. Using the exact search terms between double quotes helps narrow down the results to a manageable number. Here I used "C. E. Barnwell" (after neither "Claude Edward Barnwell" nor "Barnwell, Claude Edward" yielded anything).

    When still too many results, sorting them by date also helps.

    Then one has to check the probable individual pages using CTL-F to locate the name more easily.
