Remembered Today:

L/Cpl George Hackney (14th Battalion, RI Rifles)


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

This man appears on the St Enoch's PC Roll of Honour as "Wounded" and was sent home "DAH".

Does anyone know what "DAH" means?

Also, any other snippets on this man would be welcome.

Medal card of Hackney, George

Corps Regiment No Rank

Royal Irish Rifles 14815 Lance Corporal

Labour Corps 231274 Lance Corporal

Theatre of war France 3/10/1915. 1914-15 Star, BW & V Medals all on LC Rolls. Class Z 6/3/1919. So presumably he recovered sufficiently from DAH to continue in the service with the LC.

archangel9 seems to have found that he survived the "wounds", but could he have subsequently DAH - Died At Home?

The Parish Church might have included him despite his discharge from the Army in 1919.

John - thanks for the info.

Kevin - George was not recorded as a "fatality" in the congregational RoH (Parish Church :o) so I think that he survived the war.
