My partner's grandfather Edward Thomas HANCOCK served in the New Zealand army in WW1.
He seems to have returned to NZ with a bride from the Isle of Man - Alice Quayle born about 1890 to Daniel Alfred Quayle and Eleanor Costain.
Would anyone be able to shed any light on what a NZ soldier was doing on the IoM bringing home wives (Viking ancestry?). Was he possibly a guard at the internment camps?
I am trying to get a copy of his war record which may help me a little.
I am assuming they were married about 1917 on the Isle of Man but could be mistaken, would anyone be able to look for a record of this event?
