53rd (Young Soldiers) Bn QRWS absorbed into 2/4 Bn QRWS April 1919 (BAOR)


Recommended Posts

Has anybody got any information on this 53rd Bn and any soldiers serving in it? I am looking for a Private William Donald Wareham born 25 May 1900. I have photos of him in the 2/4 Bn but I have no idea about the 53rd Bn, which I think he must have been in.

Have a look at The Long Long Trail.


2/4 Queen’s were second line Territorials who served on the Western Front during 1918. Previous service at Gallipoli and in Palestine.


53 Bn were Young Soldiers.


So I suspect a graduated Young Soldier sent as a draft to 2/4 Queen’s after the Armistice.


58 DM.
