Remembered Today:

Driver James Calvert


Recommended Posts

Good evening gentlemen,

I've started collecting ww1-medals some time ago, beginning with Belgian soldiers But now I have a medal of a British soldier, named James Calvert. A friend of mine learned me to use the data of the cwgc. There I found the following information:


Initials: J

Nationality: United Kingdom

Rank: Driver

Regiment/Service: Royal Field Artillery

Unit Text: "A" Bty. 190th Bde.

Date of Death: 02/10/1917

Service No: 56727

Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead.

Would anyone be so kind to provide me some more data about this brave soldier ?

Kind regards from Belgium
