Jarvis Posted 16 June , 2008 Share Posted 16 June , 2008 Hello Forum, experiencing a little bit of a mystery here. Researching the 6th DLI on these dates has left me a little confused. An excert from a War Diary shows the following casulties: yet a search of CWGC (using Geoffs Engine for all DLI casualties on these dates) brings up the following : Search results for: + 30/04/1915-01/05/1915 + DURHAM LIGHT INFANTRY. records found: 10 Page 1 of 1 001 BERTRAM, TS G/2789 30/04/1915 1st/9th Bn. 002 BLACKBURN, J 2777 01/05/1915 8th Bn. 003 GARFIT, TNC - 30/04/1915 2nd Bn. 004 LETBY, J 2395 01/05/1915 6th Bn. 005 MALONEY, P 4/9029 30/04/1915 2nd Bn. 006 MURPHY, J 7895 30/04/1915 2nd Bn. 007 RANSOM, WH 1945 01/05/1915 5th Bn. 008 SMITH, HH 2214 30/04/1915 1st/9th Bn. 009 SUMBY, R 2313 30/04/1915 1st/7th Bn. 010 WELCH, R 2416 01/05/1915 1st/5th Bn. Only 1 of the 10 listed is a 6th Bn chap,Pte J Letby 2395. My question now is where are the other 5 6th DLI chaps to be found if not via CWGC ? Could somebody help point out other possibilities or where I am going wrong here ? Regards. Jarvis. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
