Top notch Posted 24 February , 2022 Share Posted 24 February , 2022 I am trying to find background information on Private Herbert John Butler, Service No. 260001 6th Batt. Royal Warwickshre Regiment. Private Butler died on 27th August 1917, aged 18. He was born on 14th May 1899. I believe he first served with the Cambridgeshire Regiment with Service No. 330759? I have searched Ancestry and found his Medal Index Cards, Soldiers Died Great War, etc. and found him on the C.W.G.C. site, Other than that I have very little on him and can only make "educated!!" guesses as to his background and service. What I would like to know, if anyone can help, is........... Did he volunteer for the Cambridgeshire Regt. or was he conscripted and at what date, as his age at death, in 1918, was only 18? When did he transfer to the Royal Warwickshire and would that have been in France/Flanders? Where were the 6th Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment fighting on the date of his death, 27th August 1917. Where can I find the 6th Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment War Diary for that period? Any help at all would be gratefully received. Thanks, Eddie.
