Looking for Captain Rose of the Wiltshire Regiment

Recommended Posts

Dever Mayfly

I have the good captain attached to General Kappel's corps in Siberia in March 1919, but does anyone have the details of his prior service in WWI, or after he returned home from Russia?

There's a Henry Barrow Rose - 2nd Lieutenant and then Captain in the 1st Battalion Wilts - could he be your man? 1914/15 Star - disembarked 14.08.14..

On his MIC it gives his address as The Barracks, Devizes, 28.12.1920

Thanks Mike,

 

Sadly, I have no initials to go on.  He has two entries in the official Siberian diary on 30 March and 31 October, but very little else.  If it is him, he did well to survive if he was in France at the beginning of the war.

I see there is a Captain Rose MC in a Wiltshire Regiment photo of 1924.

Hi,

 

It might be worth looking at the Army Lists (for example at the NLS here) and hopefully see what options there are. In the December 1919 list, the man that Mike found is shown as:

If you can establish a shortlist of contenders, hopefully it would be possible to establish their given names, and make it easier to locate relevant records.

 

Regards

Chris

Yes, he was in Russia and won his MC for a daring escape from captivity earlier in the war - many thanks for the pointer
