      I would hazard a guess that this could in-fact be my Great Grandfather as my brother is John Patrick Coleman my father was John Patrick Coleman and his Father (my grandad) was John Patrick Coleman and whaddaya know so was his dad (Great Grandfather) this outstanding gentleman that was a POW I can also proudly say many of his Grandsons and Great Grandsons have all served in the Army/RAF between my brothers and I we have 50 years of service combined my uncles have 60 years combined my uncles served in the Falklands and the Gulf my old brothers and I have done 2 tours 1 in Afghanistan and 1 in Iraq my older brother was deployed in the Falklands during the late 90’s early 2000

        If the data and place of birth are the same as your Great Grandfather’s that’s highly likely, Thank you and your family members for their service.
