Thanks Mack and Wendi

I think this means I can rule this Joseph out as my Joseph would have been 30 in 1916 as his date of birth was 14th January 1886.

Cheers

Tis that is why he's so good he's had all them there years to collect the information ;D

Hi Robinson

A bit of information on Arthur,
No joy trying to match up with the one's on the CWGC site with the ones with age and address.

Found this one on Joseph Robinson in the National Roll of Honour,(address Collyhurst) but nothing for Arthur or George. So not holding out much hope on the one I found.

Hopefully someone can find them for you.

Hi Timberman

This information on Joseph looks promising, do we have any idea of his age when he died.

Thanks

Robinson

On The War Graves Photographic Project, there is a photo of George's grave that you can buy. Just follow this link http://www.twgpp.org/information.php?id=1599186. I hope this helps.

Thanks Charmed

I have visited the site and ordered a copy. I can't believe the amount of information you have all given me on Geroge in the past couple of days.

Thanks again

Hi Rob,

Mack seems to think he was 25
this is joe
pte 2682 joseph robinson
1/6th royal scots
chapelfield rd,ardwick
died in egypt of pneumonia,on 24-3-16
aged 25

His service record may have survived, it would be at TNA and on Ancestry by the end of the year (hopefully)

Hi Mack and Wendi

Timberman has sent me a newspaper cutting

Joseph Robinson

!9th lancashire fusiliers
!2 Worral st
collyhurst
This may be the Joseph I am looking for, the main clue I am using for searching, is my Joseph would have been 28 at the start of the war and 32 in 1918. has anyone any details on this soldier mainly his age so I can research further or eliminate him

Thanks in advance

hiya rob.
this man doesnt exist,the only j.robinson,who was killed with the 19th lancs fusiliers,was pte 48230 john robinson,KIA on 23-4-18.
his service number+his previous service number[406278 liverpool regt] dont fit in with a soldier,who enlisted,in 1914.

mack ;D

Hi Mack
That will explain why I couldn't tie him in with SDGW and CWGC.

Thanks Mack and Timberman

At least I can rule him out. I will leave Joseph for the moment. I recieved a lot of information on George, I wonder if there is as much information on his brother William, he was Bombardier William Robinson 283361 177th Siege Battery Royal Garrison Artillery, died 6th October 1917. Buried Ypres Reservoir Cemetery.
It would be good to have some detail on his movements, Also if I could obtain a photograph of his grave as I am in touch with his grandchildren.

Thanks Robinson

If you want to start a new topic for Bombardier William Robinson 283361 in the Non Manchester Regiment Queries section it will help
