Arthur Nind, Military Medal, could someone offer help please?
« on: Friday 23 October 20 12:38 BST (UK) »
Hi, I hope you are all keeping safe and well in these strange times  :)


I am looking for information on a gentleman by the name of Arthur Nind 44275 who was awarded the Military Medal whilst serving with the Manchester Regiment in, I assume, 1917.

I don't know his place of birth but it may have been Billingshurst, I have him in the Edinburgh Gazette dated 12-3-1917 but cannot find him in the London edition, would he have been in both?

Other information I have is his Medal index Card which shows he also served in the Border Regiment 36316 and his Medal Rolls copy which confirms all of this, I also have a copy of the Medal Index Card for the award of the Military Medal.

There is also a piece in West Sussex Records on line which states he also served with the 3rd Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment until the end of 1916, this is where I got the information from regarding him coming from Billingshurst.

If anyone could add anything to this or indeed find him in the London edition of the Gazette it would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks, and please look after yourselves.

Frank.

Hi Frank

Cannot find any matching births in Sussex. Do you have his birth year?

There is one 1892 in Worcester which would be the nearest agewise, for WW1

Hi, MaxD, Christine53 and Kloumann, thank you so much for the kind replies  :)

Kloumann, sadly I do not have his birth but am going to have a look into the information kindly given by Christine53,.

MaxD, many, many thanks for the link to the LG try as I did, I could not find it last night, also I think the letters he received in the trenches could provide a fascinating and perhaps a sombre insight into life at the front, so I will have a further look into that.

Christine53, thank you so much for the information, they could well be possibilities and I will certainly have a good look into it, the mention of Billingshurst is like a magnet to me.

Once again, many thanks to you all, it is greatly appreciated, take care.

Frank.

Hello jim1, thank you very much for that, it means a lot, could I ask, is that information from a Battalion War Diary?

Best regards always

Correct.
They went into reserve on the 12th. Training & working parties etc. so this is the last action before March.
