Remembered Today:

2nd Battalion KSLI Photos

Recommended Posts

This is a very long shot but I wondered if anyone has any group photos of 2nd Battalion KSLI taken in early 1915. My Grandfather served with 2KSLI in South Africa ( 2nd Boer War) then India before completing his service prior to WW1. He was recalled and rejoined his unit in February 1915 in Belgium but was then WIA when on patrol in St Eloi in March 1915. I am attaching a photo of 2KSLI tug of war team in India 1907 in case anyone is interested. My Grandfather, James Merrill is second from left back row. We don't have any WW1 photos of him so I thought I would give it a try on the forum

Was he from Crewe born c1882? Assume so as you seem to have seen his few reamining service papers. Wounded right thigh.

Yes he was from Crewe. I do have his remaining service and pension records

You could try the Shropshire Archives for photos.

Interestingly when I searched the Shropshire Archive I found the tug of war photo from India
