Suspect he might have been born Yorkshire   ???



World War One / Just the discharge details would be helpful..................

Wonder if anyone could find further information on this guy.............wife, confirmation of child/children, where he lived on discharge.........Would have been handy to have access to Fold 3 this weekend to solve this little brick wall.

I wonder if he was living in Kent after his 1915 marriage to Dorothy May Beale. Whether the discharge would mention a daughter Dorothy May Beale born 1916 Maidenhead  ???  Just looking for confirmation of those 3 little things. Have other information on him already.

Pte Harry Parker - Birth Date 1892 - Residence Place Wakefield

Burial Service for four Canadian First World War Soldiers at Loos British Cemetery. France. 23 August 2018

Thursday 23rd August 13:00pm - Loos British Cemetery in France

One casualty was recovered at the site of a construction project in Lens, France, and has been identified as Private John Henry Thomas. Private Thomas was killed on 19 August 1917 during the Battle of Hill 70 whilst serving with the 26th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force.

The remaining three casualties were all recovered near the village of Vendin-le-Vieil, France and have been identified as Private William Del Donegan, Private Henry Priddle, and Sergeant Archibald Wilson. All three soldiers were also killed during the Battle of Hill 70 whilst serving with the 16th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force.

Following the initial recovery by the Commonwealth War Graves Commissionís staff,  the identifications were made by The Department of National Defence (DND) and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

The service has been organised by the DND and the CAF and will be attended by Government of Canada and regimental representatives, family members, and the CWGC. The public is welcome to attend.

The Common Room / British POWs sank with the Lisbon Maru - should it be raised ?
« on: Saturday 14 July 18 15:57 BST (UK)  »
A Chinese film-maker wants to raise a Japanese ship that was sunk in 1942 with hundreds of British prisoners of war on board. Some of the victims' families back the idea, but one of the survivors says it's a war grave, and should be left where it lies.
