Remembered Today:

Hull Battery - East Africa


Recommended Posts


I think it is Drake that is interested in this unit, but not 100% sure. Anyway came across this pic (soory about quality) when i was browsing through the Hull Times.

Caption names: Back Row: Gnr Hunter (Hedon); Gnr Roydhouse (Keyingham); Gnr Clarkson (Preston); Gnr Hornby (Hull); Bdr Frost (Hull)

Sitting: Gnr Stamper (Hull); Roper (Hull); Jebson (Hull)

Maybe of interest.

Looks like all of the photos were taken at the same time and place. Th place is Kilindini Imperial Detail Camp between February and April 1916.

Photographed are NCOs Fewster, Downs, Wainwright, Blands, Robertson and an unidentified chap (Haslin??)

There may be more of this series of pictures somewhere.

The man described as Gunner Yate in Josephs picture :

Yates John G.W. Gunner 211 290202

That accounts for all but one in the pictures so far.

Hello, I have just come across this forum and it seems my great granddad Charles H Jebson was the chap listed. I have tried to open the images but nothing happens, could somebody help please.

Thanks, MJ.
