Thomas Hadfield, 1st Bn. Manchester Regt. Afghanistan 1919
« on: December 08, 2007, 11:33:26 AM »
I asked this question on the previous forum that crashed and someone, possibly MonsStar gave me some excellent info that I did not print off!

9285 Hadfield was attached to 2nd Battalion Somerset Light Infantry which at that time was part of the 1st (Peshawar) Infantry Brigade, 1st (Peshawar) Division and fought in the 3rd Afghan War in 1919.

However the member of the forum told me about a named "force" that the he was part of.

So I am re asking the question and hoping he remembers this and still has the info.

What "Force" was Hadfield with please?

regards

Read it, its nothing to do with Afghanistan though.

This was the 3rd Afghan War in 1919, Dunsterforce was raised in 1917.

Still looking for the original contributor to spot the thread I think.
