Remembered Today:

Labour Corps


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with the following from the CWGC casualty details

Transferred to 510th (HS) Service number 330737

Does 510 HS mean Home Service and if so where were they based.

Pte Samuel Wright

Died 07/02/1920 Buried Ashington

Hope someone can shed some light on this

Best wishes Draperju

510th would have been a company of the Labour Corps, and HS would indeed have been Home Service.

I can't find a specific reference to the 510th, but it looks likely from other company numbers that this was an agricultural labour company - wounded or otherwise unfit soldiers working on farms to replace farmworkers who had been called up.

From "No Labour, No Battle" his service number is in the batch issued in the period June to September 1917.

510th Company was a Home Service Employment Company, based at Hornsea.

Has anyone got info on 436 Agricultural Coy - i.e. where they were based?

There's a soldier Harry Frost, and 436 AC is on his death cert.

Thanks, you blokes with so much knowledge.
