vea53 Posted 18 November , 2013 Share Posted 18 November , 2013 I am trying to find out any World War 1 information I can about my grandfather, Jonathon Bowden, born Chadderton, Oldham, Lancashire on 16/12/1883. He was living in Waterhead, Oldham in the 1911 Census, and continued to live there until his death in 1955. There seem to be 3 possibilities on the MIC records. One is Private J. BOWDEN, Service No.2809 in the East Lancs Regiment. Is it possible that someone from Oldham would be in the East Lancs? Does the low service number give any clues as to when he might have joined up and which part of the regiment he belonged to? In turn would it then be possible to find out where he served? Any information about this regiment in general would be of interest. Many Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
