I have got a bit stuck on a local man whom the AVL claims served as Cpl 26919 with the 14th Worcester Regiment.

He is Richard William Robinson b Itchingfield, Sussex 1882 but I can find no-one that comes near in the MICs, SWB Rolls or the service records on Ancestry and FMP

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

This man who was killed with 10 Worcs appears to have No 26919.

CUZICK, Corporal, ALBERT EDWARD, 26919. 10th Bn. Worcestershire Regt. 29 July 1917. (Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial - Belgium)

I'm guessing we have a mis-transcription in the AVL of my mans number then

Thanks

There is a Richard Robinson of the Worcesters but no service records that I can see, a Private, DoW and a number 11195 that isn't close...

Can't see anyone else..

Maybe its the regiment that is the mis-transcription?

btw he survived the war

I did wonder why someone born and raised in Itchingfield (and possibly living in Croydon in 1911) would join the Worcesters...

Could this be him?

I had spotted him before and discounted him as it seemed so different regarding the regiment ...... but I now wonder if he might have been one of those "attached to" chappies?

I think the name/number link is pretty strong.

I've checked the SWB records (because of the Labour Corps) but found nothing there.

There was a 14th Reserve Battalion of the RFR...
