Jim Hastings Posted 29 December , 2011 Share Posted 29 December , 2011 Good evening, Two local brothers, 2574 Thomas WICKENS and 2576 George WICKENS were killed on the Somme in 1916 with this Regt. My research on Sussex Rolls of Honour have brought up many Sussex men with the QVR. My research so far into the London Regiment has identified that some units were associated with occupations - eg 8th Bn Post Office Rifles, 15th Bn Civil Service and 6th Bn newspapermen and printers - does any member know of any occupational link to the recruiting within the QVR? I am assuming these Sussex men were commuting to work in London, as they enlisted there, rather than Uckfield, Lewes or Eastbourne where most local men enlisted. I would appreciate any information on QVR recruitment Many thanks Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
