Teachers in the Pals for Wendyg
« on: January 06, 2014, 07:24:02 PM »



I have been researching ' Teachers in the Pals' using the  Roll of Honour' .  If anyone has  any names of other teachers who enlisted in the Great War from any of the Manchester Regiment  that would be great.

Hi Wendy,

Sgt Frank Chandler Pln Sgt of III Pln of 17th Bttn is one example. http://themanchesters.org/forum/index.php?topic=7076.0
Louis Brownjohn in his Platoon is another.
The Merchiston & St Bees Officers in 16th & 17th are another.

I think you need a different thread and look forward to helping.  I haven't seen the role of honour and a copy would be useful.

Hi Wendy,

Please have a look through this previous thread where people helped me out.
http://themanchesters.org/forum/index.php?topic=7005.0
Primary school teacher Lewis Charles Brownjohn 9045 lost his life at Guillemont on 30/7/16, aged 26.  The pupils of St. Lukes School in Longsight (I think) will have mourned his loss, along with his parents, John and Annie Brownjohn.  Born in St. Giles, Oxford,  Lewis had been living at 2 Lansdowne Road, Crumpsall in 1911.  Identified as a Lance Corporal on the Heaton Park Roll, Lewis had been promoted to Sergeant by 30th July.  He has no known grave and is commemorated at Thiepval.

You have no shortage of leads.  Have fun.

Tim

Wendy, I had a teacher called MR. Lloyd teacher Chemistry and Physics at Mill St School of Building Mill  St Ancoats 1945. He had a damaged arm and the understanding was he was wounded in France.
Love to know if he was in the Manchesters. Could have been a sniper, he was a great shot with a blackboard duster.
Happy New year everyone. Barney

Hi Wendy

Not a pal but!!

Wilfred Edward Salter Owen was born 18 March 1893
in Oswestry, Shropshire. After school he became a
teaching assistant and in 1913 went to France for
two years to work as a language tutor.

I wondered if my post was of interest or irrelevant as no response was forthcoming?
