Fenton William
« on: December 04, 2014, 01:20:08 PM »
There is conflicting documentation regarding 31225 Pte William Fenton

On Tim's list of the men on the "Sprottau roll" he is given as 31225 Pte William Fenton 17th Bn captured at Trones Wood on 09.07.1916. From Failsworth
On the ICRC record as 31225 Pte William Stanley Fenton 18th Bn captured at Guillemont on 30.07.1916. From Chorlton on Medlock.

Can anyone clarify which is correct.
Thanks
Charlie
