Remembered Today:

178th Labour Coy Hampshire Reg


Recommended Posts

Looking at the soldier below made me realise how ignorant I am of Hampshires and Labour Corps....

Private John BAYNHAM 1st Battalion Labour Company
Hampshire Regiment, 34807
transferred to (106249) 178th Company
Hampshire Regiment Labour Corps
died on Saturday 1st December 1917
I can find a short thread from '03 on the 178th which makes reference to an article in 'GW I Was There' by an officer called Pocock? Does this ring any bells?
I'm out of my Worcs / Glos comfort zone!

The recognised source on the Labour Corps is "No Labour, No Battle" by Starling and Lee.
