Recommended Posts

Pvte George Swanson McKENZIE service no.- 76246, 11th Battalion Sherwood Foresters (b1894 Aberdeen, Scotland)

Family lore states that George spent time as a POW. He died in 1926 of pneumonia and cardiac failure. Again family history states it was due to poor health owing to having been a POW. Left a young family behind sadly.

When he married in 1919 he was listed as being a Sherwood Forester, but not sure he started the war out in that regiment or was transferred there later.

He has the Victory and British medals. Think it says F.163.B 18 (or F. 103.B 18) P3638.

I'm based in New Zealand so unable to do anything other than online research - where do I find further info to see if I can discover more?

Thanks and kind regards
