Hi Tom,

Thanks very much for your help. It has filled in one more gap for me.

Much appreciated. I have since located, what I think are ,two more on CWGC.

Mainly due to elimination and looking at them from a differene angle.

Walley B. turns out to be Herbert Walley! Obviously known as Bert!!

Dorsetshire Regt.

Steele G. I think is Henry George House Steele and must have been known as George! Dorsetshire Regt.

Again thanks for your help, I will keep going until I have them all.

Regards Ian.

Tom,

On your US servicemen CD do you have any details on the follwing American soldier - Pte. Ferdinand Muncaster, 108th Infantry, died NY May, 1919?

Cheers.

Andy.

Not one hit on the name Muncaster, perhaps its because he died after the War ended....sorry I cannot be of more help.

Pte Judge was born in the townland/Parish of Kilmovee which is in the County of Mayo in Ireland. He enlisted in Halifax while living in Kilmovee. According to Soldiers died in the great War he 'died' on 25/7/17 in France and Falnders. He is also listed in Irelands memorial records where it says he 'died' in France. If you consult the local newspapers in the County Library in Mayo he may be mentioned in the newspapers of the day.

Thats all I have on him.

Regards.

Rifleman James Judge

Thanks for the info. Co Mayo is a match as the 1901 Census form shows that he was born in Mayo. Kilmovee is very helpful as I had nothing to pinpoint the township of my grandparents origin, who I knew emigrated from Mayo. I'll follow this up when I do my annual trip to Eire next year. Interesting to see that you say he enlisted while living in Kilmovee. Family story is he lied about his age and my Grandmother was not best pleased and went to the local Mayor to try to get him de-listed. The assumption is that he was living at home in Birstall Nr Leeds at the time. Perhaps he gave Kilmovee as his abode as a sense of loyalty to his Irish roots.

Thank you again for the info I'll continue building the story of the Uncle I never had the chance to know.

Usually in SDGW if it does not give the residence it is the same as the birth location. That was the way it was recorded in this case.

10312, Pte PT Staunton , 1st Bn Welsh regt, born in Bermondsey, in Surrey, enlisted in New Cross in Surrey while living in bermondsey, KIA 20/2/15.

New York Archives

Regarding Ferdinand Muncaster, the 108th was a New York National Guard regiment and component of the 27th Division AEF. You may want to see if the NY Archives have a summary of service card.

Components of the 27th returned in April 1919 so it would appear he died shortly after returning from France.

Take care,

Neil

Ok, Tom.

Sgt. Herbert William Beeby, S/8772, 9th Black Watch, died of wounds 14-4-1917, 42 Casualty Clearing Station, Aubigny.

I have info from CWGC & SDGW. Anything else, please?

Would the CCS have been in Aubigny itself?

Many thanks,

I have nothing else to add except that the No42 CCs was on their second time being stationed in Aubigny from 20/4/1916 to 25/8/1918. He is not in De Ruvigneys roll of Honor either.
