BEESLEY, Walter Thomas


master brummie
Any information on Walter Thomas Beesley would be most appreciated. Born Birmingham 1888 (possible)? He served in the the 2nd Battalion Worcestershire Regiment from 1904 until 1914 (Discharged, sickness). Very little information to go on but hope some member may be able to supply a bit more detail regarding Walters life.

Hi Mike and Ladylinda,

Sorry for late reply to your postings with info regarding Walter Thomas Beesley. Thats a lot of information Ladylinda and much appreciated but with so little detail that I have on him other than he served with the 2nd Battalion Worcesters from 1904 until 1914 I'm not sure its the Walter Beesley I'm after (could get his marriage certificate and it may give details if he was still a serving soldier). However many thanks to you both for your help.
