CSM John William Smith, 7139

Postby Tiatia67 » Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:34 pm

I am looking for information on my Uncle, CSM John William Smith. 7139. I have had some response on the battle but I need more information on his service during his time in the Worcestershire. As far as I can gather he was a carer solider, I think Jack Smith was a regular who had served in Egypt before WW1. My Great Aunt went to Egypt with him so I am assuming that they were in married quarters. According to the records we have Jack was in Aldershot on 4th August 1914 and landed Boulogne 14th August 1914. I do not know however when he originally joined up in Birmingham. I would also be interested in knowing if being in the army was a family affair and he had followed in the footsteps of his father or grandfather. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
