alan_42 Posted 12 June , 2008 Share Posted 12 June , 2008 Would be most grateful if anyone could help add to my rather sketchy knowledge on my grandads war service or offer any ideas for further research. I know that he was a Londoner, 16 when he arrived in france on the 3.12.15 and would have served with the 47th Div. I have his medal records and can therefore follow his movements through div histories etc., but his new year cards from Dec 1918 show him no longer with the 1/19 London but the 1/7 London 'shiny seventh' who in feb 1918 were attached to 58th div from a different brigade of the 47th. I know that at some point he was wounded (thought shot more than once, prob. machine gunned) but when and where, and if this ultimately led to his transfer from the 1/19 is a mystery. Following the war he served in the Middlesex (for how long is unknown). His original no. was 4169 and laterly L/19389. If there is anything, however minor that you feel may be of assistance to me i would appreciate your help. Many thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
