Recommended Posts

I am looking for information about P/M Robert Yare. According to his medal card he was in the Northumberland Fusiliers during WW1; his reg. is 22/129. Does anyone know which battalian he was (probably Tyneside Irish or Tyneside Scottish) and when? I would also like to know his year/place of birth and year/place of death. Thanks

The 22nd Bn Northumberland Fusiliers was the 3rd Bn Tyneside Scottish. But would he have served (as Pipe Major) only from November 1914 to January 1915? He is not mentioned in "The Pipes of War" by Seton & Grant.

Served as P/M from 19/12/1914 - date of appointment to date of Discharge

Found his Service Record too - Born 1889 Jersey, Channel Islands. Had previously served 7th Royal Highlanders. Head injury cause of Discharge.
