Leinster Regiment - Lookups Offered

Recommended Posts

Guest patcorr

I am looking for some more information on a Great-Uncle of mine. Pte. David Corr, 20168. Of the 1st Bn Leinster Regiment. He died on the 17th October 1918 aged 23. Son of Patrick and Mary Corr, Ballybur, Cuffesgrange, Co. Kilkenny. Apparently he was at Gallipoli where he was injured, evacuated to Egypt. He is buried in Deir El Balah war cemetery in Palestine.

I beleive Ernest Hurkett was infact part of the 6th Bat. His mic states he entered 2b balkans on 9.7.15 which is the date the 6th landed atLemnos.

If he was wounded and transferred to the 2nd bat is still a mystery to me until i can get to kew(if his records survived)but his mic mentions no transfer nor any renumbering.

His mm was gazzeted 23.2.18 so (thanks to other members) proberbly he earnt it in Palestine( Jerusalem )IF he remained in the 6th, although his mm mic says 2nd bat. maybe its a mistake.

Hope this helps.

I wrote to the Ministry of defence 1n 1983 : Here are the details of this letter:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We regret that no records relating tp the military service of 1253 private Ernest Hurkett - Leinster Regiment in the British Army during the 1914/18 war can now be traced. Unfortunatley a large number of records of soldiers who served in the perion 1914 - 1920 were totally distroyed by enemy air action 1n 1940 and it is very probable that the records of the above named may be amoung them.

The only information now available has been obtained from the Medal Rolls which gave the following details

Served 6th then 2nd Battaloins Leinster Regiment

Served Balkans

Released to Class "z" Reserve 1/3/19

Medals : 1914/15 Star - British War Medal - Victory Medal

With regard to the Leinster Regiment headquarters - and a possible visit - you are advised that the regiments was disbanded in 1922 and that all records are now held by this office

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Document reference: 83/33633/cs/®2b/1

Dated 10th August 1983

Hi Mike

If you are still willing to do a check up, be very grateful if there is any mention of 2/Lt Horace Grant Hickson 6th Battalion KIA Gallipoli 6-12 August. I have a pretty good idea of the action they were involved in but am always looking for more. I do have a terrific picture of him if you keep/collect such things for Leinster men?

Cheers

Steve

Interested in Pte John O'Brien (7981) 2nd Bn who was killed 20/10/1914 who is on Burntisland War Memorial. Don't think he will be mentioned by name but anything on the day he was killed?

Hi Pat,

firstly, my apologies for the long delay in replying. Unfortunately, duty has called me elsewhere recently.

Your Great-Uncle is not mentioned by name in the book. The Leinsters 1st Bn spent the month of October 1918 'training and doing various work' to quote from the book. The previous month however, they had been engaged in a major battle against the Turks in Egypt. This was the final battle before an armistice was signed with the Turks ending operations in this theatre. It is possible that your Great-Uncle was wounded then, and died of his wounds in October.

SDGW shows him as being born at Danesfort, Co Kilkenny, and enlisting at Kilkenny. He also previously served as No 100348 in the Royal Field Artillery.

Hope this is helpful.

Mike

Dear Mike,

Could you possibly have a look for any mention of a CAPTAIN JK DUCAT? He was a former pupil of Winchester College, where I work, and our records indicate that he was a Captain in the Leinster Regiment and that he died of his wounds on July 25th 1924 (yes, 1924). But we don't know what battalion he was with, or how or when he was wounded. I'd be grateful for ANY information about him. All I have is the following:

James Kenneth Ducat, born July 18th 1890, Winchester College 1902-1907. He was the son of Major-General Cyril Hugh Pennycuick Ducat and Winifrede Ducat (née Howard), of Hazleby, Newbury. He died a week after his thirty-fourth birthday.

He is not included on our College War Memorial (though one chap who died in similar circumstances in 1923 is) and I'd like to get him added if I can get enough supporting evidence. We've just added two dead from 1916 who had been overlooked for eighty years. We held a short ceremony today in their memory.

Thanks,

Shaun

Hi Mike,

Thanks very much for your reply. Sorry aboutmy delay in responding, had to get married so things were put on the back burner! I did not know he had served in the Royal Field Artillery. Thanks very much for that. Any more news or information is always gladly received!

Hi,

It's been a while since the last post and I am hoping you are still able to do some look ups on the Leinsters for me. My GGGrandfather and at least 6 of his brothers all served in the Leinsters during the 1st ww. Their names are Robert George, John, Joseph, James and Adam and probably William too . Adam died in 10/8/1915 in Gallipoli with the 6th battalion, and james on 19/4/1915 with the 1st Battalion in Ypres. Cannot find much out about these two or the other brothers. Really hoping you maybe able to help. I think most served with the 6th Battalion. Thank you in advance. regards

Any help appreciated

At the Leinster Regiment Association we are slowly rebuilding the information in relation to soldiers that served with the Regiment up to it disbanding in 1922. This is a long task as it includes names from the early 100th Regiment and 109th Regiment that combined, along with the militia regiments, to form the Prince of Wales's Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians)

We have the names of all the Leinster soldiers who died in WW1 and are identified by the CWGC (the list was provided by them), so because this information is readily available on the CWGC web site, it is not a priority to add to the database.

We have already collected several hundred soldiers names of those who survived WW1 from correspondents with the Association and these together with those mentioned in Whitton's "History" and Hitchcock's "Stand To" will be entered over time (there are only a couple of the Association's historians working on the project).

We are not yet ready to "go public" with the database, there are several thousands of names to be entered. The database will be available online in due course. However if you have an enquiry about a Leinster Soldier who did survive the Great War we will do our best to respond as a "quid pro quo" for providing new information. There is a simple way to have information about a soldier added to the database using this link I will also keep an eye on this thread.

In the mean time thanks to "Leinster Soldier" for opening this thread and providing an excellent service.

Hi Mike,

Not sure if you are still offering free searches, but I wondered if you had anything for a private John Carr 819, Leinster Reg 2nd Battalion.

Thank you in advance,

Lilya

Hi, 

 

In the 2011 Census my Great Uncle is listed being a private 2nd Bn The Leinster Regiment aged 22.

He was born in Ireland (Ballinasloe) in 1890.

I can't find any information on him after this. Are you able to assist?

Michaellewis hasn't logged on since 2011 - you may try sending him a private message which once sent will send an email to his registered email address.

Alternatively perhaps start a new thread in Units and Formations?

Good luck with your research.

I came across a garbled press clipping (Mons?) Pte Goggins, Leinster Regt going into No Man's Land to save wounded soldiers. Cousin of my Grandfather I guess?
