Remembered Today:

Kings Liverpool Regiment: Portrait Photo Lookup Offer.


Recommended Posts

Over the last 30 years or so I have collected and databased details of the location of, and sometimes the image itself, of over 5000 officers and men who served with the KLR during WW1. 

 

For a limited period I am happy to do look ups.

 

If you are submitting a list please no more than 3.

 

I am always keen to know why you are interested in getting a photo of a man.

 

If I have a photo or know of a location of a photo I will correspond via PM.

 

Please be aware that from experience most of the photos I am asked for I don't have!

 

Most of the men whose photos I have are from the Merseyside area.

Hi Promenade,

 

I wonder if you have a photo of 2395 Cpl John Sydney Preston, 1/10th (Liverpool Scottish) Bn K.L.R., who was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but at the time of enlisting in 1912 was working as a salesman for a Liverpool Clothing Factory. His parents were living in Leeds at the time of his death.

 

Sadly he was Killed in Action at Hooge on 16th June, 1915. Age 26.

 

Many thanks for the offer,

 

Robert

Long shot but if you happen to have this, I would be very grateful:

 

Pte 37736 Samuel Hampton, 12th KLR from Liverpool.  KiA 7 October 1916.  Initially buried near the Caribou memorial at Guedecourt and concentrated to Bancourt cemetery. 

 

He was my cousin's great uncle.  We only found out about him the day before we made our first visit to the Somme and his was the first grave we visited within a couple of hours of arriving.

 

 

 

Many thanks.

Sorry Ron no trace of a photo - suppose as a consolation his papers have survived!

 

It may be that his is depicted as a seaman or as a R Welsh Fusilier and as such I would have overlooked him.
