jonbem Posted 16 April , 2016 Share Posted 16 April , 2016 hi all my ancestors that I have found who served in WW1 all lived in the Hull & East Yorkshire area. WARD, Frederick, Private (50236). Northumberland Fusiliers, 27th Bt27563 Pte Sydney James Ward MGCStanley Maurice Downs 3616 & S/23928 7th Cameron HighlandersAlbert Henry Downs 13948 West Yorkshire Regiment - MM. Am I right in thinking that their diverse range of regiment was due to "quotas" being reached, even though they probably wanted to join, say, the East Yorkshires or the Green Howards, and so were recruited to where needed? regards Jon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
