..although I have found them of great use for the RB men among them, as I am sure Marc has for the Hampshires, Mick for The Buff's, Joe for the Kings and Jon for the West Kents as well as many others, this was the point in placing them here for the members doing regimental databases or such like as some of the information is great..

And very much appreciated Andy. Helps to fill in gaps for men on the regimental database especially so for the many where no service record survives.

Thanks

Marc

Alas, no that name is too long by one letter. The surname has 5 letters and the initials look like P E or P L perhaps. Anyone else game to try?

How about this man!

Medal card of Groom, Philip L

Corps Regiment No Rank

King's Royal Rifle Corps R/33455 Private

Rank doesn't match, number close, but the rest of it may.

Hi Ray

I spotted him lunchtime today and sent this email:

Well ... I have assumed that this particular casualty died. So I had a shot at looking on Geoff's Search Engine ... it turned up this little beauty

GROOM P L 33455. The list stated that he was improving on 22.4.17.

Also, regarding his rank, he could have been promoted but unpaid [as my GU was]

The thing is, where and from what information were these lists compiled and how wrong/right have they been proven?

Hi Andy,

Your collection is forever growing! Great stuff!

Regarding the last 'Progress Report' you posted, can you tell me what would characterise being 'dangerously ill' vs 'seriously ill' - presumably one would be more life-threatening?

cheers

Steve

Hi Steve,

I can only presume, and its only a presumption, that the dangerously ill could maybe mean not deemed fit for evacuation back to a UK hospital.
