ROGERS Thomas Cecil

Ron Rogers

master brummie
In reference to my last request for Thomas Cecil Rogers, he would not have shown up in the absentee voters roll as he was only 19/20 at the end of the war.


Question now is ,is there any way to find out which unit a soldier, who was under the age of 21, served in during WW1?

Did England have conscription during WW1 and if so was there a register? Draft list for those conscripts and is it available ?

Regards

Ron Rogers

Thomas Cecil Rogers number 24891, born 22 September 1897. Served with the Worcestershire Regiment.

He was discharged on 3 April 1916 "Having made a mis-statement as to age on enlistment"

His next of kin was Mrs. Rosina Rogers, 143 Waverley Road, Small Heath.
