Remembered Today:

One Name Study 1914-18 Request


Recommended Posts

During this covid lock down period, I thought that I would fill my time with doing a one name study of all the  BOUNDS  men who served during the first world war.  After looking at all the online site's for records, I have now recorded 115 men all in different Regiments and Corp's of which 13 did not return home .

At the moment I am trying to locate newspaper pictures and obituaries and any other information to put a face to there records. The few that I have got show how fresh faced and young they were when they took the Kings Shilling.

For me to be able to do this, I need a lot of help from you forum members who have more expertise than myself.

Any help would be most appreciated which would allow me to continue with my project.


TIA jeffb

If you could list the names (first names) then we could look in the newspaper archives more easily.

Oh and if you could add rank and regiment that too would help. If they died in service the date of death would be useful too.
