Remembered Today:

Help with Border Regt man please


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Our gt grandfather was with the Border Regiment, private 38926, Samuel Sidebotham, having been transferred from another unit. There was no battalion stated on the MIC for him.

Can anyone tell when he was transferred with the number and which unit he may have been with please?


The Bells. :huh:

Tough call that one!

It's almost impossible to say just off the number. Does the MIC not give his previous unit?

You should be able to find out which battalion he was with off the medal rolls held at Kew and (?) Carlisle.

Hi Bells.

It was remiss of me not to add the full address to my post of earlier today, the full address is , The Border Regiment & Kings Own Border Regiment Museum, Queen Mary`s Tower, The Castle, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA3 8UR.

Telephone 01228 32774 ask to speak to Stuart Eastwood, he is superb and very helpful.
