Thanks Steve, really great!

I had never seen a picture of my great uncle and learned a whole lot I was unaware of before.

You are a trooper to make all these look ups.

Regds, Bill

Captain JOSEPH KNOWLES IRELAND

who died on 18 January 1919

HIGHGATE CEMETERY 136. 41315.

Thankyou very very much,

Hi Steve,

Would you be kind enough to see if you can find an an entry for:

Lt. Donald Halliday MACARTNEY, 802, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, KIA at The Battle of the Scarpe, 26 Aug 1918.

I have never found a photo of him, but I live in hope!

Thanks for your time,

Stuart

Stephen, This is very kind of you. I am looking for a photo of Clive Harold Halse, 2nd Lt, RFC who was shot down in France on 24th April 1917. He was missing for some months and then his body was found and is buried at Hennechy. He was a South African but I think his family would have given a photo to the London News because they went to England at the time.

Would you mind looking up Lt. Isidore Herbert Greenwood, please? (You may have seen my post two minutes ago)

He died on 6 Jul 1918 near Arras while serving with 10th Bn Middlesex (attached 8th), and was buried in Dainville Cemetery. He was the only son of Solon and Fannie Greenwood, of 24, Palace Court, London.

Many thanks in advance,

Stuart,

I had a look through the Illustrated London News (and The Sphere) and couldn't see a reference to him. I would suggest going down the schools route if you have his Canadian papers to confirm where he was educated.

Steve

Hello Kate,

sorry for the delay in replying. I have checked all these officers and unfortunately cannot find any references. The ILN Rolls of Honour go up to mid November 1918.

Hi Steve,

Just back from a trip and noticed your reply. Thanks for your efforts re Donald Macartney. His service papers are winging their way to me from Canada as I write. I hope there is some info I can use to track down a photo.
