Remembered Today:

History of the 11th (Lewisham) Btn Royal West Kent Regiment.


Recommended Posts

Thanks Longboat and Jonathan for the information. I certainly wasn't aware of the memorial at Sydenham although my father may be. I'm sure he would have been friends with Charles Wright as they lived in the same road. We think George gave his age as older than he really was, perhaps they joined up together?

Carolann has kindly looked up his service record on Ancestry for me so looking forward to seeing that. Maybe I'll find his which company he was with.

His story is coming together nicely thanks to you all.
