Recommended Posts

Hi Pals

trying to find more info about by brother in laws Grandfather.

I have the 1901 & 1911 census.

Also MIC & Roll.

Sapper Albert E Watson. RE Railways

He is numbered 283803 and WR274093 on the roll. (HERE) and it looks like all his fellow sappers were all renumbered together.

Any pointers to identify which unit of the RE Railways he was with appreciated, which could then lead me to the war diary

I can't find a service record. (probably blitzed)
