I'm looking for more information on Private D. Ney of the King's (Liverpool Regiment).

His service number is #24383.

Any service history or photographs would be greatly appreciated.

The only information I have is that he died on 1st July 1916 and he is buried at the Peronne Road Cemetary, Maricourt.

Cheers,

Mark

His war gratuity shows he had 18 months qualifying service at time of death.

You will find a photo and a write up of him in my book 'A Singular Day on the Somme - the casualties of the Liverpool Pals 1/7/16' [184 pages in A4 format]. All proceeds from the sale of the book go to charity - so I have no personal financial interest in any sale. It can be obtained for £12+ p&p if you email billtanat8@hotmail.co.uk.- it is not available from any other source.

Regards

Daniel Ney arrived in France in 1916 (No Star) and was killed in the assault between Glatz Redoubt and the French Infantry towards Maricourt Wood. He was a member of 20th Bttn KLR in 89th Brigade. Graham Maddocks' Book - Montauban is excellent.

Thank you, gentlemen, for all the helpful information.

Does anyone have a picture they could post of Private Ney?

I'm also looking for any information on what his cap badge, shoulder title and battle insignia would have been for the 20th Bn.

Thanks again,

Mark
