Hi All,
If My Wifes Granddad was in a TA regiment during the WW1 in Lancashire, is there a website that has service records etc for The TA or will it come under the regular Army ???????? ???

the TA in WW1 was actually called the TF, territorial force, in the manchester regiment there were six territorial battalions (5th -10th) all the records of the men in the battalions came under the regular army, so your first port of call would be the medal index cards

Hl mack
He came from Ince-in-Makerfield, Wigan, Lancashire.
His name was Richard Prescott and he survived the war to be discharged back to Ince-in-Makerfield.
Thanks  :)
