Remembered Today:

Sherwood Foresters transfer to Hampshires


Recommended Posts

A number of men of the 1st Garrison Battalion S/F were transferred to the Hampshire Regiment in 1917. My grandfather Pte 30071 John Ward was among them. The 1st Garrison Battalion was serving in Egypt at that time as it did for much of the war. Does anyone know whether or not the transfer actually occurred in Egypt or whether the transferred men returned home before or after it happened?
