Haven't checked them all, by any means but Pte Sidney Alwin Haward has 14 pages of his pension record on WO364.

Dvr Frederick T Wakeman and Sapper William Smeeton were both TF Royal Engineers and Dvr Wakeman looks as though he was 1/1 Kent Field Company man, the same as Driver George A Ellis.

If you do start thoroughly researching these men you'll find that numbers and unusual names are a boon. The majority of my Chailey men didn't record their numbers and so finding out information about them has been a hard slog.

Good luck.

PAUL-----------Read your CHAILEY site again----really good--Inspired me to do same with the album I have. A project for the near future-having posession of this little Gem gives you a sense of 2responsibility" somehow doesn't it?--! Thanks again. DAVE.

The above soldier was my Gt Uncle, I would be very pleased if you could let me know of anything he wrote in the book and also what is in the 14 pages on WO364. Thank you for your help. Sam

Hi Sam,

Just got back onto the forum after an absence of a year or two. I'm out tonight but I'll find the page and get back tomorrow or saturday. (The 14 pages on wo364 relate to Paul Nixon's response to my posting on 29th May 2009--see the listing above 00scroll up) . I will photocopy what i have, best wishes Dave ( Norwich).

Hi again Sam,

I have sent you a personal message about this entry in my Autograph album i.e. 5556 Pt S A Haward 1/4th Norfolk Reg't.

The complete entry includes quite a moving 4 line poem---written by your Gt Uncle referring to to his experience in Gallipoli and when he was wounded on Sept 16th 1915. ( Suvla). I will forward a digital image of the complete entry to you. It's really good to have a direct contact with a relative of someone who has written in this amazing book --it's full of names, poems, drawings and memories of wounded soldiers who passed through Chatham Hospital. Best wishes. Dave ( Norwich).
