Maz08 Posted 29 January , 2022 Share Posted 29 January , 2022 Hi, my great grandfather was in the 1st Battalion Essex Regiment (may possibly have been in the Norfolk Regiment prior to this). My mum has always told me he was in the Dardenelles and his boat was torpedoed and sank but he managed to survive. After much searching, I found a pension card with the same address on it as his was on the 1911 census. Otherwise I would never have found him. An online search of his service record had proved fruitless! I went on from there and have made the hopefully correct assumption that he used to tell family about the sinking of HMT Royal Edward. Is there anyway of confirming this? He was a Private, so not listed in any of the survivor lists I've seen. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
