Hello all;

I am seeking information about the circumstances giving rise to the following soldiers injury recieved in action and his subsequent death;

Private Archie Shelley

1st Grenadier Guards

Seriously wounded during May 1915 in France and subsequently died of his injuries at Whitechapel Hospital, London

Does anyone have information regarding the actions of 1st Grenadiers during May 1915

Kind regards

They took over trenches north of Festubert on the 15th May and were in action the following day. Occupied front and 2nd line trenches, moving back to Hinges on the 19th and then to billets at Robecq

I am looking for any information On Albert Henry Selwood. Born 1884 in Downend near Bristol. When married in 1905 he is a Sergeant in the Grenadier guards. In 1911 he is a Police Constable in Southwick near Trowbridge. When did he join the Grenadier guards and did he re-inlist during the First great war.

There was an Albert H Selwood in the Grenadier Guards in WW1.

His service number was 9734 and he went to France on 27th October, 1915 with the rank of Acting Sergeant.

The HQ of the Grenadier Guards, Birdcage Walk, London, will let you have a copy of his service record - for a fee.

I hope that helps.
