alisonpayn Posted 21 January , 2018 Share Posted 21 January , 2018 Hi I am trying to do as much research as possible into my great great uncle Albert Victory Busby who served in the 2nd Battalion of the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, service number 7924. I've failed to find his search record but have found some POW records, his grave, medal roll (confirming his disembarkation date of 12 Sep 1914) and a letter he wrote that was printed in the Witney Gazette in June 1915. What I am missing is understanding more about his military service (I do know he was already enlisted in 1911 but don't know he if then came out and went back in), where he was fatally injured and more photos of him. The POW records seem to state he was captured in Basse on 26 Sep 1915 but I've not been able to link this to a place that the battalion was during that time. There does seem to be some possible contradiction on his date of death - either 10 or 12 Oct 1915 and again, location seems to either in France or Cologne! Can anyone help with any more info? thanks Alison Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
