Charles E Drew - Durham light infantry


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is my first post on here and was wandering if anyone had any information on this indiviual at all,

I have his victory medal and done some background research, eg cwgc but he wasnt on there so i dont think he died in the war, and i have his medal index card off the national archives which is very vague.

Charles E Drew

Durham Light Infantry


If anyone can help me on this it would be greatly apreciated, eg what division or what-not....

Thanks for reading, Dave

Hi Dave

Following on from the posted front page of his attestation papers on Ancestry Service Records. There are 2 sets of records, 14 pages in all. Pte Charles Edward Drew, b.1877 had 3 service numbers, 20231, 9041 and 485196, Labour Corps. He was injured after serving abroad. The papers show he appealed re his medal award and shows he was later awarded the British and Victory Medals..,Family details also available on Ancestry.
