Capt. William Norman Harrison

Odd one this. The register gives him as Munsters. But MIC above says Inniskilling and RAF, but RAF gives a younger man who was at school when our man was a Medical Student. So I conclude our man was not the man with MIC above, and probably does not have a MIC

I think the census info is correct man
