I have had a query from someone -

His wife's Grandfather served in N&D from 1914 to 1919. He does not have a number for him but I can only find a 1st Bn man

William Henry Gregory - 6674 and 6664. enlisted 4/8/14 and discharged 15/01/1919. (Not sure why 2 numbers but it is shown on roll and MIC)

Actions - Neuve Chapelle, Aubers Ridge, Somme, Arras, Ypres. Lens, Vimy Ridge.

I am fairly sure I have the correct man but if anyone of our N&D specialists have proof either way, I would love to hear from you.

Cheers

Steve

There's another two soldiers with the same name who served with the Notts and Derby Regt. One with the 7th Battalion with number 266229 (later 4964320) as a Sergeant. Married at Nottingham on the 25th December 1913 and had two children both born at Nottingham, Kathleen Ruth 3rd April 1918 and Violet 24th November 1919.

The other i doubt is your man but he was 4963711 born, enlisted and lived at Nottingham, he enlisted on the 21st August 1920 aged 17 years and was a miner by trade. Discharged 17th April 1925.

The other you already have, his details are in the Blackwell Colliery Book, BRONNO.

I think he got his details from the Blackwell Colliery Memorial, so it must be him.

Quite probably. As a matter of interest do you know where he was from? My Tibshelf research overlaps with Blackwell on a regular basis and the Collery book has been very useful to me.
