Remembered Today:

Pte George WARING - Gordon Highlanders

Hi,

I'm attempting to research Private George WARING (S/13166) of the Gordon Highlanders. George was born in 1897 and died in 1955.

I know George survived the war and was awarded The British War Medal, 1914 - 1920, The Victory Medal, 1914 - 1919 and The Silver War Badge. George was wounded in the war and lost a leg.

I've found George's Medal Index Card but don't know how to move forward.

Although I know George was in the Gordon Highlanders I don't know what unit he was part of, what theatre of war he served in or anything else at all really.

Also, I'm kind of puzzled as to how George ended up in the Gordon Highlanders as he was born and bred in Lancashire (he was from Newton-le-Willows / Earlestown).

If anyone could help I'd be made-up. Many thanks for reading. Best Wishes, Kirsty :rolleyes:

Isn't the theatre stated on his MIC (under the medals) ?

Grant,

No entry added for theatre of war on MIC, can't find pension record and I am having trouble with bringing up any census results. Strange??

Hi Grant & Garry,

Thanks for your posts :)

Just is case it helps, WARING was sometimes mis-spelled as WAREING.

I've found George on the 1901 and 1911 census living at 85 Athol Street, Earlestown, Lancashire with his parents and siblings.

1901 Census - Source Citation: Class RG13; Piece 3574; Folio 35; Page 8.

I've also got a photo of George in his uniform.

Best of Wishes, Kirsty :rolleyes:
