    Have you written that incorrectly?
    You said in your OP that you had "INDIAN WAR LOAN (bond) of 1917" now you say you have "first world war loan"

    What exactly does it say on it?

    That will just be a typo. It wouldn't say "first world war loan" because at the time they didn't know there was going to be another one.

    You are contradicting yourself. What exactly did you ask Computershare and what did they reply?

    I think that is lost in translation. Often words like only are used differently in other languages and it is easy to pick the wrong term / turn of phrase or confuse a double negative.

    He is saying they won't. Otherwise why would he post? It is pretty obvious Computershare do other things.

    So it is a war bond was issued in 1917 to raise money during what became known as WW1.

    Not my area of expertise, but does someone actually know something helpful for the OP?
    I am just thinking out loud - nothing I say should be relied upon!
    I do however reserve the right to be correct by accident.

    my understanding is the ('1917') 5% war loan became the 3.5% war loan at later date

    the 3.5% war loans were repaid in 2015 where holders could be contacted

    it's the registrar Computershare Investor Services PLC you need to contact assuming it's a 5% war loan you hold

    And he said he did that and they denied dealing with it.

    If he holds one of these, what happens when they couldn't contact the holder? Surely there is a process for sending in the document?

    Starting thread after thread on exactly the same subject is not a good way to get answers here.
