I am trying to find any details on Harry T Newcombe who fought in the Great War and returned home to Northamptonshire.

Many thanks

Thanks. I have now been given some more information that he was 28276 Pte and he was in the 6th Reserve Cavalry (which doesn't mean a lot to me) was that Royal Scots or is that info incorrect?

I can't find an MIC to match both name and reg number on Ancestry. Could this be your man?

Amelia - thanks but don't think so.

The info I have been given is the AVL for our village (Quinton Northamptonshire) which shows the number and regt above.

Could he have been in the Northamptonshire Yeomanry, which became part of the 6th Reserve Cavalry? The Royal Scots Greys don't appear to have been part of the 6th Reserve, based on the info in the links below:

Info on Royal Scots Greys

Info on Northants Yeomanry

I'm sure one of the forum experts will be along soon to help: I happened to be footling around on Ancestry so thought I'd have a look for your man, but am failing to locate him in the military records.
