Terry: Have nothing for Perce School and the only thing in the Oxford University Roll of Service that you haven't noted in your message is that he got a BA from Wadham College in 1910 Dick

Thanks Dick! I appreciate the quick turn. I take it that the info is from the Dulwich College records? I was hoping that it might mention something about his time in the Interpreters Corps. His MIC indicates that he served there prior to the South Staffs Labor Battalion. Still, some great info! Thanks again.

Regards,

~Dan

Dan: The material on Eales was from the "Dulwich College Register, 1619 to 1926" and "Dulwich College War Record, 1914-1919." Nothing about his service with the Interpreters Corps. Dick

Frederick Selwyn Walduck, MC, RFA SR

Educated at Bromsgrove School from 1908-1914

Served with 3rd South Midland Brigade, RFA TF (242nd Brigade, RFA TF) during the Great War

MC, London Gazette 23 May 18 "for conspicuous gallanry and devotion to duty. On a tunnel in which the personnel of the battery was sheltering being blown in, he volunteered to lead a party for 400 yards over a shell swept area to aid in extricating the buried men. Though the whole area was being heavily shelled he continured to dig in order to extricated the buried men until his task was completed. He displayed marked courage, determination and contempt of danger." (He was serving with B Battery, 242 Brigade, RFA TF at the time).

MID (London Gazette 7 Jul 19 for service with B Battery, 108 Army Brigade, RFA

The first source listed below indicates that he died during the war but the second reference indicates that in 1920 he joined 68th Brigade, RFA TA. I believe that the second reference is correct. Regards. Dick

Sources: Bromsgrove School at War 1914-1918; Before the Echoes Die Away, NDG James.

Dick,

Thanks, this is excellent info. He is actually on a local memorial, which I think only has names of The Fallen, so it was a mystery to me when he actually died.

Dick, Can you help me with Geoffrey Wallace Mitchell MILLER of the Royal Scots who went to Charterhouse about 1910. He may have been there at the same time as Robert Graves which is intriguing. Thanks for all this hard work. Tim Whitcombe.
