Patrick,

There are over 13000 entries, all shown by name, i will keep my eye out for these for you. It would help if you had names as the regiments are written in small type and at 45 my eyes are not what they used to be.

I'd have to give you about 200 names so that's not much help to you. If you come across anyone that's fine ... if not we'll such is life! I know there's at least one whose name I have (can't recall off hand) but there may have been others.

Best wishes

Patrick

Ian,

Correction on your mans entry, he enlisted in the corps on 26/9/14. The 16/11/14 as stated in earlier entry was Gerald Robert Frank Knight.

So he enlisted 26/9/14 and was commissioned 2nd Lieut 4/11/14.

Sorry about that.

Andy

Any reference to Francis Ingle Sowter, who enlisted on 30th September 1915, and had reached the rank of Sergeant before being commissioned on 22nd November 1916 into the Buffs. This seems a long time to spend in the ranks.

Thanks

Many thanks Vassila. Here he is, in the East Kents. I assume that he qualified for the Inns Of Court because his father was a solicitor.

Thank-you for the photograph. For unknown reasons it is nice to put a face to a list of names in the back of a book.
