Guest Posted 26 June , 2019 Share Posted 26 June , 2019 Hello I am seeking any information regarding my grandfather Charles Edward (Ted) Newton. His regiment was East Yorkshire and his number was 6854 (MFC8087?). I understand that he was based on Lichfield - Whittington barracks. His rank on leaving the regiment, January 1923 (?), was Regimental Quarter Master Sergeant. I know that he served for a time in Ireland, North or South I do not know. I have a photograph of him with 4 other NCOs but not sure which one he is. (Please see attached). I would be very pleased for any information in particular where he served during his service. He lived in Dudley on leaving the army and I know that he welcomed many homeless man into his home with food etc., as he knew that many of them were ex soldiers who could not find employment after the war.
