Now have a complete set of biographies of the fallen through to the end of the war, almost all but a couple have a high quality portrait. The school war record too, which is one of the most detailed I have seen if anybody needs a lookup.

I'd be very grateful for a look-up on Lieutenant Ralph Escott Hancock, Devonshire Regiment, who was killed on 26 or 29 October 1914.

Many thanks.

Lt Geoffrey Cather VC is on my local memorial and I have a rather shabby picture of him and I wondered if your roll might have something better. I know he was at Rugby fr a while and wondered if you'd mind scanning a photo if there is one

Thanks Hambo

Although I have good pics and have put together passable bios from obituaries and their service files, I would appreciate details on:

Lieutenant Colonel George Eustace Ripley, C.O. of 6th Northamptonshire Regiment - DOW 16-10-1916 of wounds received 26-9-1916.

Major (acting Lieutenant Colonel) Hubert Podmore, D.s.O., 6th Northamptons, acting CO of 12th Middlesex regiment. Killed in trench mortar practice accident 31-12-1917.

Captain Frank Septimus Neville, 6th Northamptons, DoW 24-11-1917.

Thanks in advance,

Steve.

Guys,

Camera has died, like a chump I left my charger at a records office. Replacement should arrive tomorrow morning and Ill scan them up.

Hambo, the portrait is a nice one.

Steve there are good bios on the first two but the third doesn't appear on any of the lists. Closest os an R T Nevill and he survived. Do you want the photos too?

Someone round here is a nidiot. Oh. it's me!!!

I'd got it in my mind he was a Rugbeian - He was FROM Rugby.

Oops.

In my defence I've not done his bio yet, having only just got hold of his service record.

Photos of Col. Ripley and Major Podmore would be good too!

Steve.

Many thanks for posting the bios.

The pictures are the ones I already had, but thanks for posting them as well.

Your welcome, although the eye glass Colonel Ripley has is so thick I'm not sure he could have seen where he was going!

That's a much better picture than the one I had. Would it be too cheeky to ask for the bio as well just in case it has some info I don't already have

Thanks again

Dear Freddy,

When you have time, would you mind checking for a photo and bio of Arthur William Macarthur-Onslow, Capt., 16th Lancers, KIA 5/11/1914?

Thank you, Lesley.

" Closest is an R T Nevill and he survived "

Does that mean you have records on survivors also?

Do you have a Capt EGJ Moyna 7th RSF? I think he was at Rugby.

Many TKS

Lesley,

MacArthur-Onslow is int here.. I'll send the details over tomorrow...

Compo,

I have all of the service lists that they prodiced periodically so it has minimal details such as unit, and seems to mention when they are wounded if the information was available...

Moyna was a Rugbeian, again I'll send over the details tomorrow..

Sorry for the delay... have not logged in in a while.

Thanks for sending those details offline Freddy. I already thanked you, I know, but this is just on site official in case anyone might think you were not responsive.
