17th Battalion Manchester Regiment. C Company X Platoon
« on: July 20, 2013, 06:16:56 PM »
I am currently researching  my great uncle  8983 Pte Edward Woolfenden of  C Company X platoon and have managed to discover details of all the  men except 2 which I can't even find their MICs.

8176 Pte JC  Hayes

8235 Pte HN Mattock

I have tried all sorts of combinations in Ancestry but to no avail.  Perhaps I have bee searching too long and just can't see them!   Any ideas?

Wow!  Thanks Mack.  Did they have MICs? 

Looking at the platoon list it is obvious that the soldiers are listed in ranks, but I was there any other 'sorting'?  The Crowder brothers are not listed consecutively  for instance.  There are high numbers in the platoon who worked for Tootal broad hurst Lee and Chorlton Brothers  but not blocked together in the list.  Interesting!

Thanks again
