As part of some research I'm doing can I please beg another lookup from SKS with access to SDGW for any casualties of the 277th Railway Company, Royal Engineers.

Many thanks in advance.

Looks like they lump all the railway companies into to one section without being able to search by company. there are 429 men shown but a quick glance looks like they don't show the company in most cases

I don't know how the search engine works for SDGW but on an earlier request I got the same answer, then somebody suggested that they could search for xxxth in the supplementary notes. Would this work with 277th?

Thanks for taking the time to look and answer.

Regards

Steve

Or you could try 227 and find the one who May be an error, listed as 227 Railway Co.

But on CWGC he is perhaps listed correctly as 277th:

Rank: Sapper

Regiment: Royal Engineers

Unit Text: 277th Railway Coy.

Age: 26

Date of Death: 22/10/1917

Service No: 290433

Additional Information: Son of Marjorie Pinch, of Wynyard Station, Wolviston, Stockton-on-Tees, and the late Thomas Pinch.

Casuality Type: Commonwealth War Dead

Grave/Memorial Reference: IV. I. 5.

Cemetery: TALANA FARM CEMETERY

And also one who falls outside SDGW dates:

Name: TREMAIN

Initials: E T

Nationality: United Kingdom

Rank: Sapper

Regiment: Royal Engineers

Unit Text: 277th Railway Construction Coy.

Age: 29

Date of Death: 24/02/1920

Additional Information: Husband of Winnie Tremain, of The Ivies, Wallingford St., Wantage, Berks.
