I bought his medals about two months ago and this is all i've been able to find out so far.

and

Hi John

Thank you for looking for me. As Emly is my surname it is the main name I am interested in. The information you have given is very interesting as this is a new name for me.

Best wishes

Is this one of your men?

Only one in B'ham section.

John.

Cheers for the Eeles lookup in the Birmingham volume, not entirely sure if he is one of mine, his second initial has thrown me a bit but will check him out further.

Thanks again

Steve

Sorry all 3 not listed.

John.

Thanks for the look-up, it was a long shot.

Does the roll only feature men who served in the British Army, or Royal Navy and RFC/RAF men as well?

Ian.

Hello John,

Any chance you could look for me in the London volumes for my grandfather William Mansell.

He was in the Royal Navy

His address given in 1918 was 45 Douglas Street,Kent(which I am told was in Deptford at that time)

Many thanks,

Ann

If you wouldn't mind, I'd be grateful if you could look for the following Southampton entry:

241499 Pte Walter J Smith, Hamps Reg.; enlisted S'ton and died May 1918.

Many thanks

Richard

Guest Andy B

Hello John, I was wondering if you could look up Pte 2778 Herbert Edward Airey of the 1/6th Royal Warwickshire Regt. He went to France on 22Mar 1915 was discharged on 31 May 1916; I have log books for his RAF flying training as a Sgt in April 1918, was wondering what he did for two years. He was from Birmingham. Any info would be a great help, thanks.

I have all 14 volumes of the National Roll of the Great War. Unfortunately some are at my house in England so cannot be quickly accessed.

The ones readily available are.

Section 1 London.

Section 3 London.

Section 4 Southampton.

Section 6 Birmingham.

Section 7 London.

Section 8 Leeds.

Section 9 Bradford.

Section 10 Portsmouth.

Section 13 London.

Section 14 Salford.

They each list a cross section of men who served with brief service history and home address. Names not restricted to casualties.

John

If this offer still stands can you have a look for the following, all from Bourton on the Water, Glous.:

William Jordan Palmer, Gloucestershire Reg.

Stanley Palmer

Elias Palmer, 26890 Royal Warwickshire, 52271 Royal Irish Rifles, 230827 RGA
