Royal Warwickshire Regiment

2783 Pte William Sanders. I see by his MID on Ancestry he was probably IN TF. Because overseas date is 22 March 1915. It states he was discharged on 5 july 1916.

Therefore he must have been wounded late 1915 or early 1916.

Can any forum member find more info please. What battalion or actual date of wounding.

(This is one for you Alan Tucker!!!!)

Thanks

Terry

Answered by previous post although what proves that he could not have been the other three bns of 143 Bde who arrived at the same time - perhaps because he ended up in 5th Supernumary Company. I have nothing on him. Date of discharge does not help with date of wounding.

That is always a possibility.

I have taken a look at SWB/ Service records for men recorded as 5th:

2289 1 May 1914

2369 15 Aug 1914 *

2410 31 Aug 1914 *

2421 31 Aug 1914

2783 26 Oct 1914

3127 5 Nov 1914

3521 24 Nov 1914 *

3647 12 Dec 1914

3671 16 Dec 1914

* confirmed as 5th Bn men from service records,

No conclusive but it shows he falls within the right time for that number to be 5th Bn.
