Remembered Today:

1st Battalion Linc regt movements upto 1914


Recommended Posts



A few bits to begin your calendar of postings for 1st Lincolns, gleaned here and there:

In Nov 1907 in Poona India (don't know when they arrived, only that they were there then)

In Feb 1911 in Aden (ditto)

From arrival in Oct 1912 to Aug 1914 in Portsmouth, when as part of 9 Inf. Bde. of 3 Division, they crossed the Channel.

You might get a full list from the Regimental Museum.

The Bn moved from Secunderabad to Kamptee in early 1906, February I think. It went on to Poona in late 1908, November I believe. Then moved to Aden in February 1910.

You may find more information at Lincolnshire Archives, St Rumbold St, Lincoln. I have seen photographs of pre Great War when I visited some years ago. There may be some images at www.lincstothepast.com.
