Re(1): Finding Fusilier

Good afternoon Bernard and welcome to the LF Website.
I have checked his name against the Database held by the Fusilier Association but sadly he is not recorded. In fact only one person named Bulcock is recorded (from thousands) but his forename is Alan. No further details are recorded other than him being a member of the Association. Again, I have checked the LF Web Site but his name has never appeared. A cursory search of the National Archives brought up a negative result. However the Forces War Record Web Site (www.forces-war-records.co.uk ) records a TS Bulcock an Emergency Commissions 2nd Lieutenant; War Substantive Lieutenant of the Lancashire Fusiliers. His Seniority Date was 01/03/1941 and he on the Army List 1942. This is most probably your former colleague. To access the full information you may have to subscribe to the Forces War Records Web Site. It may be worth a more thorough search of the National Archives but it is sadly unlikely to find anything of recent date.
One of the great difficulties in tracing former Service Personnel who returned to civilian life post WW2 is that very little is recorded in ' official records ' , and unless they joined a Regimental Association or similar they tend to disappear ' off the radar '.
Web Sites such as Ancestry.com or Find my Past and similar Web Sites may prove a useful source of information. They are however all subscription based. Sorry for not having been able to assist you on this occasion.
