Wiltshire regiment numbers question


Recommended Posts

Lorraine

from my own list (Purton) of Wilts lads I have the following numbers to give an approx. transfer date.

25773 possibly June 1916

26662 given to a man transferred in from the Hampshire Regiment in October 1916.

NOT a precise way of confirming things but gives you an approximate starting point. If you go to the WARDROBE site which is the home of the Wilts / berks Regiment museum you can view FREE online the Battalion war diaries.

Hope this helps to start, I had a quick look on the POW files but couldn`t find him, they can be tricky to look through but be patient (link below).
