Can any Member assist please ...


I am researching the history of Lance Corporal 421788 William Robert NAYLOR (formerly Private 6532, of the 13th (County of London) Princess Louise's Kensington Battalion, The London Regiment) who the 1918 Register of Absent Voters for Keston Parish shows was serving with the 947 Area Emplyment Company of the Labour Corps. 


Any help anyone can give as to where the 947 Area Emplyment Company was employed in 1918 or any other information about William Robert Naylor would be very much appreciated ...


Thanking you in advance.


Kind regards

947 Area Employment Company seems to have been part of First Army Troops throughout 1918. Beyond saying that the Army's sector ran from the Franco-Belgian border to the north of Vimy Ridge, I cannot give a more precise location. It was probably based in one of the larger towns such as Bethune.


Ivor Lee is the Forum's expert on the Labour Corps and he may have more accurate information.
