Hi Malcolm,

could you tell me if a Amos Emmanuel Humphriss 221687 , Railway Telegraph Section, Royal Engineers mentioned. Possibly Nuneaton railways.

Thanks Gill Humphriss

Malcolm,

Would you mind checking for my Great-Uncle Arthur Joseph Pridgeon please (see signature below). I believe he was a Clerk for the LNWR at Willesden Depot.

Many thanks,

Tony

Hi Malcolm.

If you have the time could you please have a look for any one by the name of "Hogben" or "Hogbin" in the book.

Thanks.

Tim.

Tim,

I found one of each spelling.

Pte H.S.C. Hogbin listed as a clerk with the Railway Clearing House and

Pte L.S. Hogben listed as a porter with the South Eastern & Chatham Railway.

Hope this assists

Can you check for Sgt. Herbert William Beeby, S/8772, 9th Black Watch, DoW 14-4-1917.

The L&NWR Roll of Honour lists him as a Loco Cleaner at Camden. I suspect the general Roll of Honour won't have anything further, but....

Steve,

The book has less information than you provided, it only confirms Herbert Beeby as a cleaner.

Thanks for looking Malcom. Seems like he must have found something else to keep him busy. Check out the pits next then.

Hi Malcom

Do you have anything on Private Frederick James Fowles 9th Devons my information is that he was a railway timekeeper (could use him today!) do you have anything that would add to that rather sparse piece of info?

Thanks Hambo

Hambo,

Sorry for the slight delay, just returned from a couple of days in Ypres.

I have found two Fowles but not an exact match.

1st Pte A.V. Fowles a signal porter on the GWR

2nd Pte A.H.Fowles a clerk on the LNWR.

Hello Malcolm,

I wonder of your book has any information about Ernest John Hitchen, Great Eastern Railway? Lived Burnham on Crouch, Essex. Joined 1/4th Battalion Essex Regiment, KIA August 20 1915.

Regards,

Neil.

Neil,

I am sorry i have been unable to find any mention of Ernest John Hitchen, I can only assume he left railway service before joining up.

Best wishes

Hi Malcolm -

Thanks very much for checking. I found today that he's on the GER memorial at Liverpool Street but perhaps they also included men who had recently left the railways.

Once more, many thanks.

Neil.
