I am trying to find the full names of all of the officers of the 2/9th (and then subsequently assigned to the 1/9th upon arrival) arriving Gallipoli in October 1915 and I'm struggling with the 1st one on the list.

Hi Peter,

Have a look at the Ashton Pals site.  The Search facility will offer some great facts on Lt Bury and others.

You'd also be welcome on http://themanchesters.org/forum/index.php

 

Thank you very much for those suggestions. I am very familiar with the Ashton Pals web site which, as I'm sure you know, is a great treasure trove of newspaper reports from the Ashton Reporter about the 1/9th (and 2/9th) Manchesters. And I've been a member of the Manchester Forum for a while now but I have not ever posted there.

 

I started this post was when I was trying to pull together a nominal roll of men of the 2/9th Manchesters that fought in Gallipoli. Many of the men (including my grandfather and his mates) do not appear on the Ashton Pals web site or on the Manchester Forum, hence my interest in creating a nominal roll. The results of my efforts are here. I know it is not complete ...

Great work Peter.

You will see I run the equivalent site for 17th Bttn - albeit a little too extensive and disorganised now.
