6-7109 Pte Wm .E. Totman Notts & Derby Regt.


Recommended Posts

Greetings to you all from the beautiful Forest of Sherwood. All the trees are in full new leaf and the old

oaks look wonderful. I would urge anyone who has never visited to come, you wont regret it.


My next research project is a WW1 pair to 6-7109 Pvt Wm . E. Totman  Notts & Derby Regt.  later

S-310152  A.S.C.  then 361382 R.E. , the lad got about a bit. It appears that in the Notts & Derbys

he was 6th Territorial Battn  due to the 6 prefix  ,don't see that very much.

So if anyone has any more information I will as usual be very grateful.
