1914 - 1918 / 31047 Edward Quayle - New recruit
« Last post by OrsoGrande on November 20, 2019, 10:37:33 PM »
Happy Days!
I have located another photograph of my maternal Grandfather! Whislt chatting with my 85 yr old uncle the other day he casually asked me if I had "seen the photograph of my Dad when he joined the Manchesters?" I quickly obtained permission to scan it into my family history software and am reproducing it here for members to view. I would guess the picture itself is now well over 100 hundred years old as Granddad joined up in October 1915 at Heaton Park.

Thanks Mack

He's not on any medal rolls either.
On the army list it has 1-6 next to his name, I thought this was
the 6th Bn, someone may know what this means.
I looked at a few other officers that got their commissions at the
same time and non of them served overseas, so I'm thinking he didn't serve
overseas and there is no proof, so not sure why he died.
As Tim says on the other topic a trip to Kew and look at his file may have the
answer.

Hi Mack
Yes it's on Lieutenant Lionel Edwin Sedgley soldiers effects forms.
I think the CPEC is a general, but if he has no MIC meaning he did
not serve overseas why does it say Authority CPBT in France and Flanders
to charge £5 6s and 9p.
It is possible that his name is spelt wrong, I have tried a few combinations
of his name with no joy, and looked at other Regiments as it was late in the
war when he got his commission.

Gents,
Thank you very much for all your information - I'll pass it on and no doubt he will update the local history society.
Thanks again and best wishes.

This is gold dust ! Can anyone tell me where I can see these original documents ? And, if in a museum or record office, what the reference or catalogue numbers are ?

Hi Philip,
The R Berks were the largest group to be transferred on 1/9/1916.  Based on the number sequence there were at least 74.  In addition 2-6 were killied at Guillemont.
I've only found 2 members of E Surreys. CSM 43403 Young and Sgt 43402 J S R Tomkins.  43404 is CSM H A Smith from Queens W Surreys, prev 7315 1st Nothants.
