Hello all,

A friend has asked me to look into the history of his great grandfather, all I know so far is -

Name - Jeptha Pritchard

dob - 12/12/1895

Resided -Backworth

Regt - Leinsters (Btn. not known yet)

Fought at Paschendaele, was gassed and became a POW.

Anything would be welcomed, I hear the Red cross records will be digitised by 2014, but how long does a postal enquiry cost or take to complete ?

Mick,

ICRC might be a bit expensive -

"Since the 15th October 2009, all genealogical and individual inquiries relating to the First World War are submitted to a fee of 200.- Swiss Francs per prisoner and/or internee."

John,

You are a star, can you deduce which Btn or any rough dates from the service numbers ?

Mick,

Sorry you would need a Northumberland Fusiliers or Leinsters expert for that. I'm sure someone will come along :D
