Roll of Honour - missing soldier

Postby sdapeze » Fri Nov 06, 2009 3:22 pm

My great uncle Sidney George Innis is shown on the Commonwealth War Grave site as having died 24th March 1920 and buried in Worcester. From this I assume he died as a result of the war. He is not on your Roll of Honour. His service number was 13178 of 3rd battalion. Can he be added? Can you tell me any more about his war record? Thanks.

Hi,

With regards Private Sidney George Innis.

At the start of WW1 he was with the 3rd Battalion Worcestershire Regiment (his number was 13178) and sailed from Southampton on ss. Bosnian on the morning of the 14th August 1914, arriving at Havre, France the following day.

It would appear that at some point he was wounded and returned to the U.K. where he then was transferred to the Royal Army Service Corp (his number changed to T/40968). He was then discharged and awarded the Silver War Badge (sometimes referred to as the Wounds Badge - you will find details of this on this website).

The reason he was not on the Worcestershire Regiment Roll of Honour on this website was due to the fact that his last army posting was with the Royal Army Service Corp and would therefore show on their Roll of Honour.

I will have a further look into this and see if I should add him to the Roll of Honour on this website.

Regards,

Louis (webmaster)

Thank you very much for the reply. Sidney's brother Harry was killed in 1916, Worcestershire Regiment. You have the latter on your roll of honour. It would be good to see Sidney alongside him. I am trying to honour their memory with some research. If I can be of any assistance with research in Colchester, please let me know.

I have access to a well know online genealogy package if you'd like a copy of the details of his birth registration and his medal card - DM me if so! :)

Thanks Simon. If you can add anything to what has already been given, I would very much welcome it. I have traced the family tree back to the 18th century but more recent history is often the most difficult to pin down. I write this an hour after having returned from Colchester High Street where the Parachute Regiment have been marching to mark their Freedom of the Borough. A proud day for Colchester!

I'll get what here is ready for you.

Colchester must be used to parades having been a garrison town since the 1st century!

Just as a matter of interest some years ago I visited the grave of Harry Innis on behalf of my old Sunday School teachers wife...it was before the days of digital photography and I know I gave the photo away and the lady I gave it to died a few years ago, however I will check negatives when I have time .
