I have just added Devil in the drum, British Red Cross and Order of saint John Enquiry list 1917 and believe it or not, 'Irish Army deserters' during ww2. Deserted not from the British Army but from the Irish army. It lists 5.000.

Hi Tom

Can you please try:

Pte Herbert Charles Kendall, No 4400, later 200570. 3 medals

Initially 5th Bedfords (TA), arrived Gallipoli Aug 1915, wounded or similar as he turns in a St Albans Hospital, but then ends up KIA in the 7th Beds (Service) in France 23/03/1918.

Anything (dates etc) you may have may help fill blanks!!

Much appreciated Tom

Sd says his number is 200570, 7th batt Beds,Enlisted in leighton Buzzard and resided there, KIA 23/3/18.It does not say he was previously in an other unit, or had a different number.

CWGC does not add anything else to it.

sorry.

Tom.

Tom,

Would you please see if you have anything on this young man:

Jack Bamforth, a 19 year old United States Marine, was killed in action in France on 15th June 1918. Born at Prickleden, Holmfirth, Yorkshire, the son of Harry Bamforth. He left Holmfirth with his father and family to start the New York branch of the Bamforth’s post-card business when he was six or seven years old. They lived at 249 West 178th Street, New York.

Many Thanks,

Tony.

Jack acually "Died of Wounds" on 15th June 1918. His body was repatriated after the war. I'm unsure of his place of burial.

Hi

I'm trying to put together a list of men from the Ballymena area who died in WW1 and I have reached the point where a have about a dozen men on whom I have few details and can find out nothing more. Would you have a readily accessed source that might shed light on a Co Antrim connection for the following:

Wm O Wilson,

John Taggart,

Herbert Taggart, and

R S Smith?

I understand the difficuly of what I am asking but would much appreciate you checking what databases you have. Do put yourself too much trouble.

Thanks in anticipation.

Sorry for not getting back to your guys but my puter crashed and am trying to reload all the sttuuf from backup. This could take a few days. I looked up Hanzlick and there was not one soldier of that name in all 2200pages of the USA war dead sorry. Botts greys, I only have SDGW for officers if you wish I will look in that when I load it up this evening.

Sorry about the delay again guys.

Tom
