Laird of Camster Posted 13 October , 2013 Share Posted 13 October , 2013 Ladies & Gents, Has anyone got a copy of Soldiers Died for the Devons? I`m trying to ascertain what circumstances I`m looking at for a casualty (KIA or DOW or indeed just plain old DIED). I`d also be most grateful for the born & enlisted details. 51566 Pte L W COLDICOTT 1st Devonshire Battalion date of death 24.09.1918. CWGC reveals that he was 19 and was the, Son of Mrs. N. G. Hyde, of The Craven Arms Hotel, Craven Arms, Salop. His MIC gives his first name as Leslie. He`s not on the 1901 census, but I think I`ve found him1911 Leslie William COLDICOTT of Aston WARWICKSHIRE aged 11. Assuming these are all one and the same person. Interesting how he`s not on the 1901 census, but appears to be living in Aston in 1911 and how ended up in the Devonshire Regiment, and after the war his mother is living in Shropshire? However SD will be able to clear this up? I`m also hoping someone can also assist me with is what the 1st Battalion Devonshire Regiment was doing on 24.09.1918?
