GHELUVELT ROLL

Postby Glyde » Wed Nov 08, 2017 8:33 pm

Peter,
WO Class 11 Edwin Ford, 7848, 2nd Battalion, landed in France 12 August, 1914 and listed as Segt. on the 2nd Battalion Worcester Cathedral Rolls.
He doesn't appear on your Roll, do you know of any reason as to why he wasn't there? He transferred to the 3rd Battalion much later.

David,

Sorry I did not see your original posting on Ford. New information regards 2nd Bn. men will change the listing as and when available. I believe that 7848 Ford was at Gheluvelt. He DoW 11th General Hospital 9.6.1917 (3rd Bn.)

Regards

Peter

This will never be a 100 per cent complete list for those 2nd Battalion men at Gheluvelt. Without the service records for all those 14 Star men this is just not possible but I had hoped to at least compile a list for those men I believed were with the Battalion on the 31st October 1914 (that is not to say they were involved in the charge on that day). I am workmg on 1st and 3rd Battalion 14 Star men at present so don't know when a Gheluvelt update will be done.

Regards

Peter

David,

Thank you for your offer. I have the basic details for each individual (14 Star Roll, MIC etc.) for 1st Bn. and now ploughing through 3rd Bn. men. It's later when this is completed that I go into more detail for each man (birth, marriage etc.). Always open to help with the research.

I had hoped with the Gheluvelt list that feedback on the men listed would help but how many people today are interested or know about a relative who had served with the 2nd Worcesters at Gheluvelt?

Regards

Peter

Peter,
Always happy to help with research on Worcester's men.
If you let me have an e-mail address I'll try and help out if I can. Though I am very much a novice but very willing.
Regards,
David
