Reverend & 2nd Lt. Edward Edwards - 4th Battalion

Postby scully » Fri Dec 18, 2009 12:39 pm


I am trying to trace the history of one of our early (possibly the first) Scoutmasters of the Avonside Boy Scout Troop in Christchurch, New Zealand - Reverend Edward Edwards. I know from the Church records here that he was in the RAMC (I assume this to mean Royal Army Medical Corps?) in 1915, he served in Gallipoli and Egypt, and died in action in France (our records here show 31st of May 1917 - the records online for the Regiment show the 30th - not sure what is right). The records I have here state he was a 2nd Lt. in the 4th Battalion of the Worcester Regiment in France.

Any help appreciated.
