Remembered Today:

James Henry Jarvis


Recommended Posts

I am researching James henry Jarvis who is on the Wellington Shropshire war memorial. I have a copy of his papers from Kew which states he was Hawke Battalion and interned in Holland from 8th October 1914. On his papers there are notes of two periods of leave: 12 December, 1916 "on leave from Holland expiring 29.12.16" and 17 June 1918 "leave from Holland expiring 29.12.16" He was repatriated to leave 19.11.1918 and sadly died 30.11.18 from influenza, brocho-pneumonia and cardiac failure..

I wan to know has anyone come across leave being granted to internees in Holland before and what exactly did it mean. I can't imagine he was entitled to return to the UK for a couple of weeks but you never know!

It means exactly what it says. Men were on parole to return to Holland when their leave expired and invariably did so.

Incidentally, his entry on the CWGC website records has offical number as LZ/3110. He was actually London 4/3110 - No.4 Company of the pre-war London Division RNVR.
