Hi Mick

Do you have any information on a Sargent Benjamin Macleman who died on the 26 Oct 1915? He was in the 2nd Battalion of the Coldstream Guards No. 8549?

Kind regards

John

Hi Mick/Coldstreamer,

Many thanks for that, greatly appreciated. I dont think I would have been able to find out the hospital without your help. I dont suppose there is any info about how he recieved his wounds?

Hi there

I am very new to this site and looking for some help please. I am researching my friends Grandfather for her and trying to gather as much information as possible to present her with as she knows very little about him. This is as much as I have gathered so far :

Albert Edward Faulkner, Lance Sgt, 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards, died of wounds in Flesquieres 29.11.1917 ( possibly battle of Cambrai ?) he is buried in Orival Cemetery France near Cambrai.

I have tried but cannot find any details of the part played by the 2nd battalion in the battle of Cambrai. Anything at all about Albert and his role in World War 1 would help me build a picture and portfolio for my friend. Thank you all so much

Carol

Hi,

If you use below link and use Coldstream Guards as the search field you fill find the 2 volume CG WW1 history is available for free download.

The date of entry 26.8.1914 on the 1914 Star roll above suggests he entered France as a first line reinforcement (same as my gf) and would have joined 2nd CG "in the field" 4th Sept 1914.

You can pay for a copy of his service papers via CG HQ for £30. Forum member Coldstreamer will also probably be able to assist re his service papers.

I am researching WA Millar, 3/Coldstream who was taken PoW on 13 April 1918 at Hazebrouck.

He also happened to be the captain of the touring Springbok rugby team in 1912.

Any snippets/tips gratefully received.

Many thanks

Stephen
