    Not much to go on with this person but hoping someone can help with information. All I have is an address and this was around the 1930's, 28 Kirby Road, Winson Green. There was a daughter (Emily) but do not know husbands name (possibly Samuel?). A son named Samuel died in WW1 (1914). May have...

    2nd Battalion Worcesters 1914

    Hi Carolann, Sorry I don't have a Francis B. Murphy on my database so he would not have been a 1914 Star man (with the Worcesters). With the date you gave for his enlistment I thought he may have served in S/Africa but found no record for King's or Queen's S/Africa Medal (again with...

    2nd Battalion Worcesters 1914

    Hi Luan, I have your G/Grandfather on my list. His service record does not appear to have survived the bombing in 1940 and apart from MIC, 1914 Star Roll and BW & Victory Medal Roll details I have little regards his army service. He enlisted 23rd September 1902 and was discharged (wounds) 30th...

    Hi Jim, Going back a bit 1997 so don't think I would be able to obtain a copy. However it would only be part of Dulcie's fictionalised biography of her father and I have been hoping to see the complete work. Regards Peter

    Shelley James Christopher

    Hi Jim, Many thanks for your very kind offer and any info regarding his (James) service with the Worcesters would be most appreciated. I know the Imperial War Museum have a copy and I did contact them some time back but because of copy-write law they only allow 10% copy of the work (so I have a...
