Remembered Today:

2nd South Lancashires


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

A couple of us Irish contributors are trying to put together as much information as we can on Pte. Patrick King, 7330 2nd South Lancashire Regiment. (see thread by Pol running in Soldiers). He died of wound on 2/2/1915 and is buried at Bailleul. We have all the ususal stuff; MICs, CWGC, etc - Service Record seems to be missing.

I'd like to dig out any information there might be on where the South Lancs were on that day and a few days previously - as he died of wounds he might have been wounded several days before his death at No. 8 Casualty Clearing Station on 2/2/15. Any mention of him in official documents would be a bonus, but I don't hold out too much hope on that one!

The regimental history does not state this exactly, but the battalion spent the early months of 1915 'on the lower slopes of the Messines Ridge in the neighbourhood, at different times, of Lindenhoek, Kemmel, Spanbroekmolen, Wytschaete and St Eloi.' If you want to know exactly, probably the easiest thing is to contact the Regimental museum of the Queen's Lancashire Regiment, Fulwood Barracks Preston. It holds copies of all the war diaries.
