One from me
Pat

Thank you Pat, that is a lovely improvement and is safely saved in his folder.
Still got no real concept of 'how' you folks do this but I am very grateful that you do :-)

Please could you confirm that the typed snippet refers to 21 and 23  March 1918?
Confirmed. It came from the 1/WYR war diary.
I notice he was wounded in the chest on 14/8/15.
This was at Hooge crater on the Menin rd. E. of Ypres.
In July the Germans had successfully attacked & taken the trench systems at Hooge
& Sanctuary wood & the 1/WYR along with the rest of the 6/Div. were tasked with taking it back
at the start of Aug. 1915 which they did.
On the 13th. 1/WYR went into billets in Ypres but sent back up the line on the 14th. to dig communication trenches.(yellow square).
One man was wounded...yours.
if you want larger images let me know.

Oh thank you Jim! Spurred on by your previous info I have now downloaded the war diaries and can see that entry.

If you have a larger image of the map (or a link to it if its on the web), I'd appreciate it. My screen is fairly large and the one you posted is difficult to make out here.


EDIT Sorry Jim, DumbBoo has now scrolled on from the entry in the War Diary and can see the map !
I should be able to add the highlight area myself.

Fascinating post and great photo do up and wonderful information.

Did you follow up if any of his siblings got married around 1914

I also thought if someone can identify that flower maybe it is symbolic of a regiment that all the young men wearing one had signed up to .

Or a symbol of their town
I dont think there is a flower that represents courage or hope but anything is possible.

Earnest could do with new boots from the army

I noticed one of the men seems to have some brand new shoes
It reminded me of my grandad b 1900
He had 5 brothers and said whoever got up first got the best shoes and trousers  !
The brother who didnt go to war  became a shoemaker !
How many brothers/cousins did Earnest have ?

Hi Brigidmac.
If this was a wedding then it definitely wasn't any of Ernest siblings, I haven't got as far as cousins etc at this stage.

But I do feel I am straying way off topic now for this board and don't want to outstay my welcome.

No doubt I will need help with non photo stuff for these folk at some stage, but will post on the relevant board (County Durham), keep your eyes open, I often need help and am always grateful for any input :-)

I get the impression that these lads joined up together.
You may try looking for numbers similar to his.
A bit of a trawl I know.
To narrow the search look for men with the prefix "3" indicating a Special Reservist which your man was.
