The Labour Corps number 79520 indicates that he was with 25th Infantry Labour Company, The Queens, which became 133 Labour Company on the formation of the Labour Corps. (From "No Labour, No Battle).

If anyone reading this post finds out that their relatives were in the Labour Corps here, in Lyons La ForÍt or in the surrounding areas I would love to hear from them as I am studying this areas involvements during both world wars and I know that the Labour corps along with the Royal Engineers were here.

Hi Alex
Only just read this post and not sure if you are still doing your research. My great grandfather was in the Labour Corps 107th Co and died on Dec 1st 1917. His name is on the memorial at Cambrai.He was previously in the Royal Fusiliers.

My great uncle enlisted in the 1st Connaught rangers in mid 1915 I dont know exactly when he transfered into the labour corp but it was because he was unfit for front line soldiering, I do know he suffered badly from shell shock to the point it ruined his life,most of which was  spent in a mental hospital.
