Nigel M Posted 9 August , 2006 Share Posted 9 August , 2006 Having read the information from this great site I am hoping that someone may be able to help with some additional details. My ggrandfather enlisted with the 4th Tyneside Irish(NF) which I assume was a Pals Battalion from the Gateshead mining community as we have recentley got hold of his medal card details.However his death is recorded on the Ploegsreet Memorial as having been NF Fusiliers 1st/4th Bn. attd. 149th Trench Mortar Bty. Was it common for men to move from various details or would a different posting offer more money/safety from front line danger or not as in this case. As he is recorded as" Pres Dead" we would appreciate if anyone had more information available on life and death in a Trench Mortar Battery in 1918 . CHJ Meek d 12/04018. Many thanks.
