World War One / 1/4th Battalion, Royal Sussex Regt. in 1918
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 20:34 GMT (UK)  »
I'm a bit confused and hoping someone can explain. 

I'm looking at the records for 2/Lt. Charles Thomas Squires, 4th Bn., Royal Sussex Regiment (Territorial), who died of wounds on 30 March 1918.  He is buried in France.  However, when I looked on the Long, Long Trail it looks like the Battalion didn't land in France until May 1918.  Please could someone put me straight.

*just found his MIC which looks like he was originally #2464 Hon. Artillery Company* still confused though :-\

World War One / WW1 PoW record - need help translating
« on: Saturday 30 December 17 22:10 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone read the attached which relates to Henry Pepper.  According to Ancestry and CGW records he served with 12th Suffolk's (Pte. 40345) but this mentions Essex Regt.  I can see his dob and death of death but the rest is probably in German or Swiss.

World War One / Confused re records for Bdr. 72162 Arthur Jarman RFA
« on: Monday 25 December 17 21:26 GMT (UK)  »
According to the CWG site, Arthur died 26 August 1914 and is on the La Ferte-sous-Jouarre Memorial to the Missing.

Ancestry’s Soldier’s Died gives the same date of death; however Soldiers’ Effects clearly records him as dying 3 April 1915 - I assume that was an error made at the time?

Apart from the dates being different, I’m also confused because Ancestry describes him as dying from wounds as a Prisoner of War – if that is the case why is he on a memorial to the “missing”?

Wasn't sure whether to post this under Essex or Military but I found this WW1 site relating to Essex Hospitals very interesting:

Armed Forces Resources / Hull / East Yorkshire Regiment - useful website
« on: Wednesday 15 November 17 21:21 GMT (UK)  »
I am currently researching the men named on the St. George in the East (East London) War Memorial, one of which served with the 6th Bn., East Yorkshire Regiment and came across this brilliant website which others might find useful:

There's a lot of general information on the War as well as info. relating to men and families from Hull.

London and Middlesex / Dennis family of Stepney / Whitechapel
« on: Sunday 05 November 17 20:36 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone know the identity of the two men with the surname DENNIS who are commemorated on the St. George in the East WW1 memorial?

I am trying to research all those listed on the memorial and am stuck with several names including Dennis. 

I have cross-ref. with those on CWG and Ancestry but can't find any obvious match.
