Thank you fore the service Stu, I stumbled across the site previously, but now am trying to do some more research of a relative.

Name

Leonard William Molineaux, No 7290

A company, 8th Batallion Royal Fusiliers

KIA 8 July 1916 at Orvilliers La Boisselle.

The requests are the usuall, any mention of the 8th in your service history, and what recomendation for further reading are there. I am trying to get the "Brief History of the 8th Batalion" but no joy yet.

The other interest is to put his experiences into context with the maps, and other action near by, its effect on the whole battle. Trench map copies of the date and place.

I am also looking to ensure the above data is correct.

regards

David.

Stu

can you please give me any information you have on a private william cunningham gs/68843 of the 24th batallion royal fusiliers as i cant find alot about him as i am quite new at this. the reason i ask is that we think we can name some graves that could be our great great uncle plus 3 others, the only thing we need or the answers we need to a few questions are

1. what other battallions were fighting around bancourt, fremicourt, haplincourt and barastre, that kind of area, in march 1918. our guy was killed on the 24/3/1918. whether these battallions were royal fusiliers or not, we need to know who was fighting in that area.

2. we need to know if a private cunningham w gs/68843 received any wounds during the war. this will then give us our answers so we can name the graves, also we have recently found out that this guy has another service number which is 48691 royal fusilier but do not know which battallion. would this identify that he was wounded or not and why was his number changed. did they ever keep the same service number when they were wounded and then moved battallion or not.

sorry its a long one Stu

Regards

Wayne

Hi Stu

That's a great book you have thanks for your offer of look ups. Could you see if David Martin Vincent 424457 10th Londons is listed / mentioned?

Thank you

Hi Londons

I'm afraid I don't think I have this book any more, but I doubt it would have had any mention of the 10th London's, I'm pretty sure that unlike the first four London regiments they were not badged as Royal Fusiliers, so would not have been included in the book.

Sorry I can't help

Hi James.

The 26th battalion made a raid just north of Wytschaete on 15/12/16,Lt CRW Jenkins was awarded the M.C for shooting a sentry,taking the identification of the German and leading the raid.

At 11.30pm the same night,the Germans also made a raid on the battalion front and caught some of the Fusiliers unawares whilst repairing the wire,the enemy entered the front line,but Pte H.Jones beat them off with a machine gun and Lt M.B.Maude went out to collect the wounded men fron the wiring party,Jones got the DCM and Maude got the MC.

No mention of the 2nd Londons on 17/9/16,but on 15/19/16 they made an attack at Combles,C and D companies quickly gained their objectives but the enemy tried to bomb them out,their losses were so great that A and B companies were sent to reinforce but they also suffered badly,the position was eventually held by the assitance of another battalion(not named).

I hope this is OK for you.

Stu

Just found this site and thread while looking for records of my father on this Remembrance Sunday. And here he is - Claud Raynes Winkworth Jenkins, who was then 21. I knew he had won the Military Cross but none of the details nor the date (47 years to the day before I was born, his youngest child). My father lived through and survived until 1970, having served in the Royal Flying Corps as a teenager. He never spoke about what he had seen. Thinking of him and the countless other brave men and women who served, particularly on this day.

He was born in Wallington, Croydon in April 1895. I don't know much about his early life (he died when I was six), but he's listed in the online RFC records for ? 1913, and twice in the London Gazette. I found one other service record for the Great War, though it wasn't very informative - will have another look on Find My Past. Thank you.
