Joy Family in WW1

After discovering the grave of Robert Sizer Joy at Lone Pine Cemetery at Gallipoli, I began to wonder about other Joy’s who served in WW1. I knew of my great uncle Kenneth Charles Joy who was in the Navy in WW1 – but what about any others ? Looks like  “A One Name Study” could be the way to tackle this.
