Hi Rich. Have a look at the Long Long Trail website. Scroll down and you will find the 24th London Battalion, that is number 24, one of the many Battalions of the London Regiment. You will find much more on that website to help you build a better picture, of how the Army structure works. I use that site all the time.

I will have a look on Ancestry, see if I can find anything.

Cheers Mike

Sorry Rich, I can't see anything on Ancestry. They only have service records up to the letter N, so far, so there may be a service record, that has yet to put online.

Hi Rich, I had a quick look and am afraid can't see him. That doesn't mean his service record isn't there though.

Perhaps someone else can confirm yea or nay.

I had a quick look and am afraid can't see him.

Likewise, can't see anything obvious.

Rich - I think the 24th, like the 22nd, were 'The Queens'. I have 4 Maldon/Heybridge casualties from that battalion.

Regards.

Maldon
