3rd Battalion Coldstream Guards

Recommended Posts

Geordie

Hello,

I am trying to find out where the 3rd Batt,CSG were in October 1914. I am related to Pte. Fred Jamieson, 3rd Batt. who died in Wimereaux on October 31st 1914. On his medal card it says he was attached to a Light Railway Company? It's all a bit confusing so any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Cant see him on there

As he died his papers wont be at the national archives or FMP etc - for some reason guards are not there

Ill dig a bit more

 

 

The btn was not at Wimereaux then so without checking where it could be died of wounds in hospital or was indeed attached elsewhere
