The following articles are from the Peterborough Advertiser of 1 September 1917 - pictures of the four Sharp brothers, an article, and a closer image of Arthur:

Having located where he lived we can see his entries in the Absent Voters List for 1918 (attached)


He is listed with his Labour Corps number and unit (600th Home Service Employment Company) and since his number is also stated, we can date his move from the 3rd Northamptons to the Labour Corps to approximately May 1918 (possibly around 20 May 1918).

J Sharpe's call up (probably under the Derby Scheme) appears in the Peterborough Advertiser of 24-6-1916:

Many Thanks for the info, so much I didn't know.    Arthur never talked about the war, only that it made one leg shorter than the other.

I have attached  his medal card and his discharge certificate to see if any my info can be found.

Have not found what he did before the war,I suspect he worked in the Brick yards like his brother. 1911 census shows Samuel Sharp 18 brickyard pressboy.

Many thanks Derek

 :) I am looking for any information on my great uncle who was with the 13th Battalion Royal Fusiliers.

His name was Robert Hay,# 79710... he was killed in action in France, Sept.14th 1918. He is buried (or listed) at Vis-En-Artois Cemetery. I just have panel 3?

Im looking for any information on him or the 13th battalion. He was from Cummingston Morayshire Burghead.

Thank you. :)

Looking at his Medal Index Card he was originally with 22nd Battalion the Northumberland Fusiliers(3rd Tyneside Scottish) he must have transferred sometime after that.
He went overseas no earlier than Jan 1916

Looks like he has no known grave and remembered on the memorial
