Hi

Bit of a long shot I know but as he was an officer I just wonder if any one has a photo of him they would share with me.

Bit of back ground.......

Only 17 in 1914, Pte 2441, he went to France with 1/20th London [47th Div] 9/3/1915.

He must have thrived in the army and was commissioned 2/Lt into the 18th London (5/6/18),

Lt (29/11/19) and went on to be Captain and Adjutant before retiring in 1922.

Thank you in advance.

This might be his file,showing up to 1921,and another entry in 1930 which might have been his cessation of Reserve List.The only file with an EAGGER name but the initials are EA:

File not yet digital.

Thank you for the pointers Guys.

The record I quote and Peter's are not the same one as mine has a diferent "old number". I will look anyway next week.

Files don't usually have photos in,in fact I've never seen one yet,but often have an original birth certificate.

Thank you, most kind of you to offer.

If it helps, his father was William John Eagger who was in the civil service a Foremen Engineer in the Royal Army Clothing Department, presumably responsible for all the machinery in a uniform factory. After the war he [William] was awarded the ‘Imperial Service Medal’ for home civil servants. His two sons (Algenon Nisbet Eagger and Albert Eagger) both served in the 20th London.

Regards
