Hi all, i have a John Willaim McIntosh born West Hartlepool abt 1887.
he can be seen at 1891 RG 12 4049 fol. 58 pg 21 with parents William & Margaret McIntosh,
on the same page is another John McIntosh, born Stockton abt 1889 with parents
William & Elizabeth.
I have attestation papers for my John Willaim McIntosh and he joined up in 1904 to 3rd battalion D.L.I.
At the top of his papers is 6591, this John William McIntosh is definitly my family.
A J W McIntosh was killed in action in 1914, his medal number and Medal card number are for 8946, 2nd battalion, but my family always thought that this J.W. McIntosh was our relative,
could it be the same person.
I have other posts re the general family but this one specific to the Durham Light Infantry.
Please help if you can, all the best Derek
