Teachers from Manchester in Pals Battalions
« on: March 03, 2013, 11:14:58 PM »
Mack told me this about III Pln. 17th Bttn

'two of the sergeants in your granddads platoon were teachers for the manchester education commitee
sgt 8087 frank,e chandler was a teacher at all saints church school he was commissioned into the royal engineers,won the military cross
sgt 9045 lewis,charles brownjohn taught at st.lukes national school,he was killed at guillemont on 30th july 1916'

As usual, members seem to have data beyond the payfor sites.  I was chasing up any record Sgt Chandler and didn't know which school Louis Brownjohn taught at.

I'll start another thread on the Edinburgh teachers, when I have full details, but if anyone has detail of other City teachers that joined the Pals, please tell us.

Tim

This is from the list of Teachers of the National Union of Teachers book 1914-19.

The list is for the one who serve with the Manchester Regt.

The first list are the one who were KIA or DOW

No 21 & 22  MM,  No 23 MSM  No 24 Croix De Guerre.


The main list does not have the Regt the teachers they served with.


You would have to doe some research from the lists to find out which Bn the teachers served with, best of luck  :o ;)

Mack,
Frank Ewart Chandler was a 17 YO pupil teacher living in M/Chr in 1911.  I can see him on the MEC list, but not the NUT list.  Is there something else that tells us he was a teacher at All Saints?  I suppose he may not necessarily have been in the Union.
I think I found his RE MIC 113437, but can't see his MC.
