Thanks for reporting on this do you happen to have any more information on Pte S Moorcroft from Bloxwich eg Service number please.


I'm trying to find all men who enlisted in ww1 from Bloxwich, Blakenall and Leamore for my website http://bloxwichteam.wixsite.com/bloxwich-remembers and Pte Moorcroft is one I did not have, so many thanks for listing him. If you have any other names I'd be interested.


Thanks again.

Hi Sue

Do you any reports on Pte. / L/Cpl 8913 Peter Small?




I know this was posted a long time ago, but Peter Small 8913 was my Great Grandfather. Is there any more information about him? I have his medal card from the National Archives, and know he received the Silver War Medal/Badge and he was in Gheluvelt. He was also part of the Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes, but can't find out much more. Any information or links would be greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately there is nothing in the papers about your relative.


The MiC shows an address in Darlaston and 2 Worcs. but that is all I have, sorry,


If you do not have Ancestry, you should be able to gain free access at the library and download his Silver Medal card




This will give you his joining and discharge dates.


The WD is here for a small fee






You can then see what he did every day of his service (bar leave illness etc.) !!
