12bn London Regt (Rangers)

Recommended Posts

Forum members, I need your help with uncle No.3

2353/470428 Pte William Harry Wiltshire joined 12bn London Regt (Rangers) Aug/Sept 1914 and arrived in the war zone 24/12/14, earning him the 14/15 Star.

Then he won the MM, gazette 13/3/18.

Um, that's it. I have no idea what happened in between.

Can anyone put some flesh on those very bare bones.

TIA Frank Wiltshire

You can get a re-print of their history: The Rangers' Historical Records: From 1859 to the Conclusion of the Great War by A.V. Wheeler-Holohan and G.M.G. Wyatt for about £17 from Amazon.

Does his MM Card also show him as still with the Rangers?

If so, I would suggest that it is likely to be an award from the battle of Cambrai in late 1917.
