bobpike Posted 14 December , 2004 Share Posted 14 December , 2004 On Swineshead War Memorial, Lincs is listed one, Arthur Marriott, but it has been difficult to definitely identify him, can anyone help, please? What we know from the Lincolnshire Standard of 16.10.1915 is that he was the third son of Mr. & Mrs. T Marriott and enlisted in April 1915. He was employed by a Mr. Dance of Black Jack Farm, Swineshead & is reported to have transferred to France three months later. His two brothers were Robert, who enlisted in the 9th. Lincs in Jan 1915 & later was killed & John George who also enlisted in the same battalion at the same date. It is inferred that Arthur joined the same battalion as his brothers had done, but this cannot be positively said. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
