Well done to all

Apart from anything else the sheer volume of men listed (to date) is overwhelming, what a huge task you have undertaken & on behalf of my family I thank you.

With any luck you have helped me find an elusive family member Chalkley, F.J., #24931, 20th Royal Fusiliers, I'll let you know

Thanks again

JD

edited to add: Doh! It wasn't him, still, I got that lovely tingly feeling - cheers JD

This may be of interest to someone; the list comes from the service papers of Gunner 51895 Thomas Riley:

Hi Diane

I haven't checked through the whole thread so may already be listed, but I came across a list of men admitted into the 9th Field Ambulance in February 1915. The list is 5 pages long and provides date, service number, rank and surname, unit/regiment and reason for admission. It was hand written so not that easy to read but if you want to add it to your list then let me know.

Well done Diane!

Any ideas as to what 'D.A.H.' means wrt Corporal Connellan?

All the best

Thanks for posting Diane,

Interesting to see the entry for Pte M1/09043 Bertie Mallett ASC attached to 7 Siege Battery RGA (presumably he was a driver for the battery in some capacity). Makes me wonder what situation he found himself in to be bayoneted in the left thigh? (Assuming that's what 'Bay.' denotes!)

Gnr. Birktwistle, A. is actually 37271 Arthur Birtwistle. The damage to the document has saved any embarrassment for the soldier suffering from an abscess!

Diane, I have a few other lists which I will try and post sooner rather than later, or I can send you them if you PM me with your email address.

Best wishes,

Stuart

Hi Stuart

If they are as clear as the one above then, by all means, post them on here as I think it's important to continue to add to this thread

Cheers

I have looked through all these lists of sick and wounded, but have been unable to find my Grandfather Andrew Clark #10260 who was twice wounded. The last time was some time in 1917, when he lost his arm and won the M.M. He ended up in a hospital in Orpington. He was with the 8th Bat. Seaforths the second time he was wounded. I have his medal records but his service records are not available on Ancestry. I am almost positive that earlier today I came across a post where someone had lists of wounded for the Seaforths which was downloadable. I am technologically challenged and new to the Forum and can no longer find the post. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Hazel C.

Hi Hazel,

I can't help with finding the downloadable lists post but can help regards the list in which your grandfather is named. Contact me via the forum PM system and let me know your email address and I will send you a copy - it was published in The Scotsman, 10 Sep 1917, p10. Based on Seaforth men named as killed in action, it appears to date men as being casualties on or soon after 31 Jul 1917, which coincides with the 15th (Scottish) Division, of which the 8th Seaforths were a part, at the Battle of Pilkem, 31 Jul - 2 Aug 1917.

Cheers,

Stuart
