242535 Cpl Albert Bartley served with 1/5th King's Own (He's the only A Bartley to serve with the regiment). He survived the war. Interestingly, the man with the number before him, (242534) Harry Bowers enlisted in Ossett, Yorkshire. Manisty Bainbridge (242522) and Allen Bancroft (242523) were also from Yorkshire- all three were killed at 3rd Ypres, so it looks like a draft from one of the Yorkshire Training Reserve Battalions was diverted en-masse to 55 Division. I'd estimate his King's Own number being issued around late December 1916 to early January 1917 as 242539 reached the battalion on 10th January 17.

What do you mean by "in old English"? The script, the language?

The Script is in old English. Martin.

An ex-OE student adds:

"Ahem... Me thinkest sire thou meanen ye Myddle English..." Old English is full of 'thorns' for 'th', as in something that looks like 'Pisses', actually means 'This'

Thomas Edward Fawdington, Army Pay Corps. He was a 29 year old Railway Clerk, living in York on the 1911 census.

He has pension papers on Ancestry, but I don't have access.

Robert William Stubbs, enlisted in the East Riding Yeomanry (no. 974) on 11th March 1910. He lived at 11 Scott Street, York and was 19 years and 11 months.

He was mobilised as Lance Corporal August 1914 and subsequently promoted to Corporal 1st November 1914. He was released from duty on the death of his father 24th March 1915 before being posted to the Northern Home Yeomanry on 29th May 1915. He is given as demobilised from 24th July to 18th September 1915 but then listed as "extension granted" on a further four occasions (each for about a month) until he was finally discharged on termination of engagement (KR 392 (XXI)) dated 28th April 1916.

Cheers,

Neil.
