George Morgan 1st Life Guards

Recommended Posts

Coldstreamer

Hello,

 

Any 1st  life guards expert on the forum?  I believe George was headhunted from the 1LG band into the Coldstream band . Or was he time expired and reenlisted? 

 

On fmp there seems to be some files for 1LG WO/400 , can anyone confirm or provide any other details. From his dob of 1887 and subsequent lsgc I think he enlisted in 1901 as a boy soldier. 

 

His Coldstream number suggests a 1913 enlistment and he served with them throughout ww1 and at least into the 1920s playing the cornet.

 

Cheers Ian

He was in the Coldstream in 1901 for the census age 18 place of birth Wells Somerset?  At the depot "for recruits" at Caterham

His number suggest a 1901 enlistment (from Army service numbers blogspot)

Thanks but def not the one I'm enquiring about, mine survived the war 

It's more a 1LG query than CG

I think that number is too low for his enlistment - it might be on FMP as Im not spending £3.50 on something I reasonably expect to be the wrong person :ph34r:

He is the only 1 LG George Morgan who comes up in WO 400 (which you sked for more info about).

 

His record is on FMP (the only George Morgan Life Guards) and yes, served 1881-1891.
