Remembered Today:

Sgt. W Disney RFA

I have a picture from my Great Grandfather's collection of 2 members of the RFA with whom he must have trained/served.

It is labelled on the back Gunners Bill Sapp(?) and Disney

London and Birmingham

Canterbury 1917

May

I cannot find a record for a Gunner Bill or William Sapp but can find one for a Sargent W Disney 3918 'B' Battery 62 Brigade RFA who was killed 26th November 1918.

The picture is highly likely to be William Disney but I can find no records of a William Disney of Birmingham on Ancestry.

It would be nice to contact any living relatives so they can have a copy of the picture.

Any ideas?

I have a few pictures from the collection which are named with individuals but tracking them down is proving difficult.

Mike,

Can you scan the back of the photo? It's possible that someone may be able to decipher 'Sapp's' name.

Attached as requested.

The soldier on the right is Gunner (later Sargent) W. Disney I believe.

The one on the left is Gunner Sapp (?)

Cheers

Mike,

Thanks for posting as requested. I read his name as Sapp also.

I have been searching FindMyPast and Ancestry, nothing yet, but will keep trying.

What about William Alfred Tapp b Camden 1891 Served as 1381 2nd EA Brigade RFA & 880638 RFA ?

Service record on Ancestry shows he was in hospital at Ersham House , Canterbury Jan/Feb 1917

From Forest Gate , London.
