World War One / Re: Help Please Tracing Medal Cards
« on: Yesterday at 22:12 »
15th. Btn. sounds right as others from that batch are either 15th. or 17th.
Looked at RFC/RAF rolls & he's not there either.
17497 R.Scots appears on page 795 of their roll so 17501 should be on the
same page.
On his pension ledger it states his medals are on page 149 so it's not the R.Scots roll.
The ledger also says his 2nd. stint overseas was from 29/8/17 - 3/3/18.
March 1918 was the date the RFC became the RAF so it may be his 2nd. tour was with the RFC
or he joined the RAF after it's formation.
According to TNA there are no rolls for men joining the RAF after it's formation.

I've looked at the medal roll for The Royal Scots & 17501-05 are missing.
This leads me think that these men were transferred to another Regt.
Where has the R.Scots info come from?

1st. looks to be around WW1 - early 20's.
2nd. looks pre war around 1910.

Found it & just going through late 1917.
They were involved in action Nov. of that year.
I'll see if there's mention of MM's.

Couldn't see any reference anywhere mentioning a Coy.
This is what the LLT says:
216th MG Company   
Joined 1st Division, 22 March 1917. Moved into No 1 Bn, MGC 28 February 1918.
I'll try & track down their diary.

Unfortunately not.
You will have to rely on newspapers & any mention in the war diary.
Unfortunately again being MGC you would need his Btn. no.
The Gazette entry will be several weeks after the event.

1890's & may creep into early 1900's.
