Leonard C Crouchman - York & Lancaster

HughesS&J

Hi,  i hope someone can help me as i am trying to track down the battalion my grandfather was in and his medical records, when he was wounded so i can track his journey back to the UK. On his medal card it shows that he was in the Y&L  63722 and then Labour Corps (NCLC) 682980. He enlisted on the 1.3.1916  at Chelmsford and was discharged on 24.3.1919. A cousin says he was first posted with the Royal Fusiliers.  He was wounded twice - first ? on the Somme and losing an eye at Passchendaele. He received a Silver badge B270333 / L.C/4835.  Unfortunately i am not in the position to visit the Chelmsford records office to view the Absent voting records as i live in NZ.

Thank you, Jan

Have nothing to contribute on his WW1 military activities, but he seems to have been in the Chelsea News & General Advertiser in March 1915.  This is from the British Newspaper archives index.  I don't have a sub to BNA to look at the full article.

It was a paternity case....Leonard was ordered to pay until the lad was 14 yrs old.

Thanks for confirming reason for him being summoned to court by Dora.

Cheers...a strong possibility for his son was Alfred L Marriott b Jan 1915.

Dora may well have later married a chap with the surname of Edge.

Leonard's father John seems to have died accidentally in 1912 after walking into a pond in the fog on his employers estate

 

Leonard appears to have had a motorcycle accident in June 1927..

Jan originally posted this on Casualty Lists and I advised her to start a new thread in Soldiers. This Leonard Crouchman was suggested by myself but it might not be her man.

I think you are on the right track...according to Freebmd there is only the one Leonard Crouchman born between 1880 and 1900.
