Hi Kevan and thank you for your kind offer. I would be grateful if you have any information on Pte 19786 Roland Harry Perry 1st Battalion South Staffords of Earl's Buildings, Leopold Street who was KIA on March 28th 1917 or of his brother, S. H. Perry, also a Stafford, or father H. Perry who served with the Worcester Regiment. I will be in Birmingham next week and so if you do have any dates I might be able to pop into the library to obtain a copy.

Thanks again. Sue

Hello P. J. Clarke here are two irish men from Birmingham from the picture world 29 may 1915.

Hi, my man: Appreciate your kindness and interest in bringing these two men to my attention. Had a wee look for them but as yet found nothing. They could possible be from Dublin as the Census says that most Cullens came from there. I'd like to mention that a James Cullen from Castebar, Co. Mayo, got a mention in the local papers; but a Patrick Cullen from here in Ballina got killed on Tuesday, 25th August, 1914 -- nearly the first man to die. If you come across any more I'd appreciate it. Thanks again. P. J. Clarke.

Hi Kev

I thought you might be interested in Dave's new item. A framed piece of embroidery saying "Absent but not forgotten" and a postcard of a 9th Royal Warwick in full kit by the name of Ruane.

The name rings a bell with me concerning your own interest in the 9th Warwicks

Cheers

Terry

There is no mention of Henry in the Bham Weekly Post 1914-1918

There is a 'A Worrall' mentioned in the edition of 9.6.17 as being severely wounded. He was also aged 19 and had been a pre-war Territorial. He lived in Chain Walk, Lozells.

Thanks Alan

The Worralls lived in Ladywood, so I think we can discount the Lozells Worrall, thats a shame I had hoped for a photo of Henry...

Thanks for looking it up, very much appreciated.

Kind regards
