Remembered Today:

James Sherry


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Im trying to find the service records of James Sherry who may have served in WW1.

I can only find a James Sherry in the medal award roll but can't find any information to establish if he is my relative.

From the Medal Roll:

Private James Sherry

Regiment: Cameronian (Scottish Rifles)

Regimental Number: 266649

Former Unit 7 Sco Rif 2609 Pte

Thanks in advance!

Hi Craig,

Well he was born around the Airdrie area on 20th March 1884. He moved to Glasgow perhaps prior to WW1 and was married to Mary Christie.

There are 15 soldiers with the name James Sherry in the Medal Index Cards,some of them Scottish. Why do you think that he will be the one you choose ? Your man first landed at war at Gallipoli on 2 Dec 1915 and the card also states that he deserted on 4.4.1918 and no medals were issued. Another date shown is in 1952 with a comment "nearest check".

It was a new record I came across. Perhaps I have overlooked in the past. Prior to that I have assumed that James' record was destroyed during WW2.
