Hi,

Any Northumberland fusieliers experts who view this. I'm wondering if it is possible to give an estimated date that a man joined the regiment from his service number. I'm researching my grandfather who survived the war, he was. Private 64911 Wilfred Peel Denton. his discharge papers shows he joined up 4/7/1917 and was demobbed on 3/3/1919. His papers indicate he had previous service with the Durham Light Infantry before he joined the Northumberland Fusiliers .

Anyone who views this who can help answer the question please view my other post with the same topic title posted 15/11/07 as this has other queries I would like help answering please.

Thanks in anticipation.

John.

John,

Pte Wilfred Peel Denton OF York is known to have joined the 22nd Bn, NF on the 31st March 1918, as he is one of 106 men who joined the battalion on that date of whom 60 of them were from the 51st Graduated Bn, Durham L.I.. The Bn War Diary described them as follows;- "They were well disciplined and a good class of young lads - their musketry was excellent".

A photo of him actually appears on page 166 of "Tyneside Scottish" by Graham Stewart & John Sheen.

Obviously a very popular book Graham, as shown 'currently out of stock' will keep trying to get it though.

Medic7922,

He was one of many East Yorks transferred into the battalion at that time and it's interesting to note that he was also an East Yorks Territorial originally serving with the 1/4th Bn, but was then transferred to an East Yorks new army battalion and given a new five figure number, before transfer to the NF.

Graham.

PS

Do you have a photo of him, as it would be nice to have one for my records?

Graham, Unfortunately I do not have any image of Charles Osgothorpe, I was not aware he was a Terrier, Do you know which TA Drill hall he was attached as I thought he lived in the Bourne area of South Lincolnshire, but I admit there is not much that I know of him only he was my grandmothers brother. for your info my Avatar is my Grandfather George Lockwood also East Yorks, I can send an image of him if you wish
