I have a fairly complete set of the Roll of Honour pages published in the Illustrated London News 1914-1918.

If you would like me to search for a photo of an Officer killed during the Great War then please reply to this post. I need rank, name, regiment and date of death details. There's always a possibility he may have been recorded in this publication.

N.B. it may take me a few days to reply so please be patient.

Regards,

Steve Bickmore

Hi Kate,

I've had a look for Captain W.H. Charlewood 6th Bn. Northumberland Fusiliers T.F. and you'll be pleased to learn I've found an entry for him.

From "FOR KING AND COUNTRY: OFFICERS ON THE ROLL OF HONOUR" September 2nd 1916......

"CAPTAIN W.H. CHARLEWOOD,

Northumberland Fusiliers. Son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Charlewood, of Waverley, Mount Nebo, Taunton, Somerset. Has been officially reported as having died of wounds."

Regards,

Stephen

Steve

this is a very kind offer, and I see a lot of people have taken you up on it already. If its not too much trouble, please could you look for:

CAPERN, HENRY JAMES (HAL)

2 Lt, 11th btn, KRRC,

"attd 59th T.M. bty" (I don't know what this means)

died 22 March 1918, aged 23

He was my grandmother's cousin. She lost an uncle and 5 cousins, but Hal was the only one who was an officer. He was an only child and I have no idea what happened to his photos, medals etc after his parents died. It would be lovely to see a photo of him.

thank you, Pat

"attd 59th T.M. bty" (I don't know what this means)

It means attached 59th Trench Mortar Battery. Each infantry brigade had a trench mortar battery and men from the infantry battalions assigned to the brigade were attached to the trench mortar battery. Regards. Dick

Dick,

I looked through and only found one Officer. However, I have loaned some copies to a fellow medal collector and will have a look through these when I get them back next week; I really need to put all the Roll of Honour names in a database.

Anyhow here's the details:

From "FOR KING AND COUNTRY: OFFICERS ON THE ROLL OF HONOUR" October 21st 1916

MAJOR GUY EGERTON KIDD

R.F.A. Son of Dr. Percy Kidd, M.A.,

of No. 60, Brook Street, Grosvenor Square, W."

One more less for you to search for!!!
