paul_adam Posted 24 October , 2013 Share Posted 24 October , 2013 I am researching Francis William Bullock Marsham and wondered if anyone could help as I have got a bit stuck on several points. There are no papers for him at Kew and so I have got most references from the LG or War Diaries. He was serving with the 19th Hussars, and his MIC gives a date of 10/9/14 for landing in France. My problems start there because the squadrons initially served with different Divisions and I cannot find a reference to him in the war diary for A, B or C squadron, and all three disembarked at the end of August. When the 19th reformed in April 1915 and the war diary becomes that for all squadrons, the roll of officers doesn't refer to him. War Diary 1/1/16 refers to him as receiving MID in LG of same date and refers to him as Staff - and his MID Card refers to him as GHQ Staff - that makes me think he was appointed to the Staff early on, but I cannot find any reference to it. LG 2/3/16 FWB Marsham is Brigade Major from 5/2/16. Cannot find which Cavalry Brigade this was - definitely not the 9th (which 19th Hussars was part of) LG June 1916 awarded MC LG 16/7/17 appointed GSO2 from 8/6/17. assuming this was 2nd Cavalry Division as he was temporary GSO1 from 25/02/18 If any one can give me any ideas of how to pin down where he was from Sept 14 - Jan 16 and which Brigade he was Brig-Maj to I would be really grateful!
