Remembered Today:

Can't find him in SDGW

Recommended Posts

Having enjoyed searching for other people's soldiers, I've now got one of my own.

"Soldiers Died....." lists 9981 Sgt. Joseph Carter, Machine Gun Corps (Infantry)

Born Leeds

Enlisted Middlesbrough

Residence Highfield, Yorks

"Died" at "Home" 11.6.17

Formerly 15533 West Yorkshire Regiment.

I couldn't find him on CWGC last night, woke up refreshed this morning and tried again but no luck.

Can anyone spot him?

Allie and Peter, thanks very much. I'm really grateful to you. Late last night I couldn't find him under Carter, J and I did search all the Carters who died in 1917 looking for his number but couldn't see it, though it must have been there.

I must have been too bleary-eyed.

An excellent result for me as I particularly wanted to know where he's buried - thanks again.

I know this is an old post but here is a little extra additional information

Terence O'Connor who ( served under the alias Joseph Carter)

M.I.C states he committed suicide

He can be found on the 1911 census residing with his widowed mother and siblings at 8 Prosperity Road Leeds employed as a Tanner
