Shiny Posted 21 November , 2018 Share Posted 21 November , 2018 (edited) Morning All, I've found an article in the Newcastle Journal dated 13th August 1917 as follows: Mrs Carruthers, 35 Noble Street, Newcastle has been informed that her husband, Pte W Carruthers has been gassed and severely wounded and is in hospital in Netley. He is a son of Mrs Carruthers, 161 Meldon Street, Newcastle. I think this is my GG Uncle William Issac Carruthers, born around 1894 in Newcastle Upon Tyne as the Meldon Street address is his address on the 1911 census. The thing is I've searched a few times and can't find any definate military details for him, the closest possible I can find is 31/427 Pte W Carruthers, 31st Bn Northumberland Fusiliers who became 203383 Pte W Carruthers, KOYLI. There is a pension record on Fold 3 relating to Pte Carruthers but I can't get at that until they do another free access thing, so I'm wondering if anyone can find any details about either William himself or the soldier above so I can rule him in or out. Thanks for the help, Michael Edited 21 November , 2018 by Shiny Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
