Information on Pte 307273 Sidney .G. Newell Notts & Derbys


Recommended Posts

Greetings from  a very soggy and damp Sherwood Forest


My  present stalled for many years research project is Pvt  307273 Sidney G Newell  Notts & Derby  Regt

All that I have is a medal index card with his name rank number and regiment plus his medals

which are the war and victory, 

So anything else would be appreciated.

Hi John & Barry.


You have my thanks. How I ever missed Private Newell in the Notts & Derby casualty roll I will never know , but I did.

I put it down to old age (  any excuse ). Interesting to see that he was once in the 12th Pioneer Bn.

I love the bit about him being in the SCOTS DERBY. The Foresters once had the nickname of the "Notts & Jocks "

but I don't think the scots derby.    Anyway again many thanks
