NY Archives request

Hi Chris,

The above link gives you the form to request Pvt. Brown's service card in the NY Archives. Well worth the $1.

I'm sure nothing you didn't already know!

Take care,

Neil

George Allwood, All it says is that he enlisted in Nottingham.

Pte Farrer born in Gaitsgill in Cumberland and enlisted in carlisle.

These guys are not in De Ruvigneys roll of honour.

Neil,

Thanks for the suggestion--greatly appreciated. Actually, this was something I didn't know. Although I've been collecting WWI photos & paper for a while, I haven't really had the time to concentrate on research. My prior research experience has been primarily American Civil War, and I have have spent countless hours at the National Archives (luckily, I work nearby) researching ACW soldiers. I am now (hopefully) broadening my horizons and getting much more involved in pursuing my Great War interests. Anyway, NY State Form is filled out and ready for the mailbox.

Tom,

If I could call on your good graces once again, could you do a SDGW check on:

George Henry Dawson

Gunner - RFA

Thanks so much,

Chris

Sory Chris. Nothing on that number, there were two George Henrys Dawsons but none from the artillery, and there were other George Dawsons but from the RGA not the RFA. their numbers were not even close.

Tom,

Thanks so much for checking. I was basing my request in this CWGC entry:

Name: Dawson, George Henry

Initials: G.H.

Nationality: United Kingdom

Rank: Gunner

Regiment: Royal Field Artillery

Age: 24

Date of Death: 22/01/1919

Service No: 245734

I see now that I inexplicably omitted his Date of Death. Would the fact that he died in January 1919 have left him out of SDGW? If so, I apologize for sending you on a wild goose chase.

Chris :o

Could you just keep an eye open for anyone born Luxembourg or similar that you come across.

I'm trying to do an inventory of them (records are pretty awful) and for the US army I have little except a list of names, none of which seems to appear in any other records (mostly ABMC burial records).
