I'm seeking information on the 32nd Battalion Middlesex Regiment.

They were at Gorleston-on-Sea in 1918.

Can anyone help on what their duties might have been whilst stationed there?

Thank you,

Noel

Hi,

Did you ever get an answer to your question? I have recently been investigating the activities of a second lieutenant who joined the 32nd Middlesex at Gorleston after seeing active service with 2/20th London.  Any answers you might have would be gratefully received.

 

regards

Dave

Welcome to the Forum

 

32nd Batt. Middlesex Regiment was formed  from the 63rd Provisional Battalion at Great Yarmouth on 1 Jan 1917 and allotted to the 225th Brigade.

 

225th Brigade.

19th Bn Queen’s. 01 Jan 1917 - 11 Nov 1918. 
11th Bn Bedfordshire Regt. 01 Jan 1917 - 11 Nov 1918. 
15th Bn Essex Regt. 01 Jan 1917 - May 1918. 
18th (Home Service) Bn Essex Regt. 27 Apr 1918 - 11 Nov 1918. 
32nd Bn Middlesex Regt. 01 Jan 1917 - 11 Nov 1918.

 

They had the dual roles of Training and Home Defence. At Gorleston this would have been a coastal defence role within the Great Yarmouth area.

 

Hope this helps 

 

Dave
