Remembered Today:

Private John Guthrie

Recommended Posts

I have a picture of Private John Guthrie in the uniform of the 7th Dragoon Guards. I would like to find out where he came from and what happened to him. It is a picture that was published in a book (I don't know which book) so he was probably on a Roll of Honour.

There is a Medal Index Card for only one Cavalryman with the name John GUTHRIE,and that is for 24494 13 Hussars. He went to France on 17 Oct 1915 and was awarded three campaign medals. Discharged on 2 Jun 1919.

No sign of a soldier with that name for the 7 Dragoon Guards,if there is one he probably didn't go overseas to war during 1914-18,as far as my searches tell me.

If you can get to post the picture here there may be someone who can date it for you.
