  4. Private Charles Clifford

    Private Charles Clifford, service number 4969, mobilised to join the Coldstream Guards on 5th August 1914 and killed at the first battle of Ypres in October 1914.

    He left a widow, who had already been widowed by the Boer war and a young daughter.

    I have photos, medals, dog tag and mobilisation letter.

    I would appreciate if you could add him to your register, from his only surviving great grandchild. Thank you.

Name mentioned on Menin Gate. Can a life story be kept for these two?

  9. Henry Robert Hamilton Tollemache born 1888

    Hi. He started his WW1 military career in the Hampshire Regiment (I believe) and later went to the Army Service Corps. I have him as a Lieutenant in 1918. One of the extended Tollemache family of which there are a number of records on the site - but not his.

    Herbert Charles Young - new Life please
    burnt document in WO 363 is very difficult to read but it seems he enlisted 23/11/16 and was born 1885 in Castle Combe. He finished as 441337 in Labour Corps and may have had earlier service numbers of 2779, 62335 or 6233_

    according to medal card was service no. 6928 but his service record scan shows 6923. Please review the actual medal card - could it be a transcription error?

  15. Please add Deck Hand Frank John Hitchcock – Royal Navy Reserve SN: SD 217 – served between 1915-1918.

    I have a copy of his service record via Ancestry/Discovery National Archives – UK, Royal Naval Reserve Service Records – Reference: BT 377/7/92649. He was invalided out August 1918. I think his rating is Deck Hand.

    If you could create a life story for him that would be great as I have additional information I would like to add to remember his contribution during WW1.

    Thank you.

  16. Please create a life story for Rifleman Arthur Whiffen KRRC no. 60105

    I cannot find KRRC Arthur with surname spelling variants or number. This Arthur's service records are muddled in the middle of a different Arthur Whiffen's service records.(ASC T/3/023104).
    which you can see at:
    https://search.livesofthefirstworldwar.org/record?id=GBM/WO363-4/7318700/12/324

    KRRC Arthur was born 2 Feb 1882 Peckham Surrey, is married to a different person and has other children named in his records

  19. Please Add - Edwin Neiass – R.N.A Royal Australian Navy – SN:7123 served duration of WWI

    I have copy of his R.N.A service record via Ancestry/Fold 3 (Series Description: A6770: RAN, Petty Officers and Men) unfortunately it has been filed under WWII Military Service Records, 1939-1945.

    He served with the R.N.A between 1912-1922. He served on HMAS Melbourne 1913-Sep 1917, London Dep 1917, Cerberus 1917-1919. His was awarded The 1914-15 Star, The British War Medal, 1914-1919 and The Allied Victory Medal. Acronym used to record service rank is A/Ldg Sto – so I have interpreted that, having checked on TNA – records abbreviations WWI, I think his rank is Acting Lead Stoker?

    Edwin was born in…

    William Charles Baker enlisted at Devizes 24 August 1916 according to his service record WO 363 at TNA. He seems to have had 4 service numbers: 3572, 162635, 687453 in the Royal Field Artillery, then 535459 in the Labour Corps, but I can't find him. Would you please create a new Life for him or direct me to his existing one.
