Remembered Today:

5th Bn Tank Corps

Hello - Does anyone have the War Diary for the 5th Bn Tank Corps?

The diary for Jul 1917- Feb 1919 is not available to be downloaded from TNA website. I am researching a William Liddell who served in the Tank Corps for a neighbour (his grandfather). There was a great uncle (no forename yet I'm afraid) Liddle who also served in the Tank Corps and was allegedly commissioned and was killed I cant find him on the CWGC website so it may be misinformation. ...so as along shot if anyone can connect the name Liddell to the Tank Corps via the diary it would be of great interest.

There are four Liddell men linked to the Tank Corps listed in the Ancestry MIC search and none are Officers. Thanks in advance. MG

I am not in Bovington this afternoon but will be there tomorrow so can hopefully get to the archive then if you haven't had a response by then.

I have had a look in the Tank Corps Book of Honour and the only Liddell listed in the Roll of Honour is 69816 Pte W Liddell.

The War Diary lists 69816 Pte Liddell who was killed in action 3/10/18. There’s nothing for Liddle.
