Hello, all

The above name is my maternal grandmother's first husband. I have some details below, but wish to fill in some blanks if I can.

Name: Hargreaves, Harold

Born: Walsden, Lancs. Dec. 26, 1893

Enlisted: Todmorden, Lancs

Service No. 47601

Presently I do not have any access to Ancestry.co.uk. During the free look-up in November, 08, I could not locate any service record(s)

What I do know about his military service is that he was in 10th Battalion (Service) Welsh Regiment, and was serving with that battalion when he was killed in action on Aug. 04, 1917 (this from CWGC). I do know that some of the Welsh Battalions did recruit from the Lancashire area. Is there any way to find out more about this man's service? I think his service record did not survive WWII.

Thanks in advance for help.

Hi George,

I don't know if you have his medal index card, but here it is. He was only entitled to the BWM/Victory Medal pair.

Hi Les;

Thanks for that quick response!

I had only been able to locate the download off 'Documents on Line' from the National Archives, so a colour copy is great

Any more info on Lancashire lads enlisting in Welsh Regements , anyone?
