Bennington, Bodman and Bland were already in the database under their correct names, Bell was KSLI and Beller KRRC both deleted along with Barton.
Thanks Mack

42097 John Thomas Nutter is listed by the ICRC as 18th Bn, he was taken on 21.03.1918. Is his correct Bn known please.

Charlie
your ok with the 18th batt Charlie,i don't remember coming across any 18th men being captured on that date before.

mack ;D

There are four in the database taken on the 21st or the 23rd March:

375578 John Butterworth
Lt Walter Evans
252825 Walter or Edwin Jennings
61266 Ernest Lanceley

The Battalion for all of them is then suspect due to the 18th's disbandment.

Is there a battalion for these two please:

8253 James H Nixon
53078 Henry Oakes

Cpl James Henry Nixon was a member of the 17th Bttn Bugle Band.  SDGW says he was killed in action on 8/5/1918. Soldiers Effects says the same. His mother Mary Ellen Newman received his Effects.   They lived at 151 Tegnmouth Street Collyhurst in 1911.
A bit strange that his death is posted in action if he was a PoW.

Mack, Tim,
I've stuffed up with James Nixon sorry. The index card does not give a number for him and there are only three in the MiCs, 8253 looked to be the only possibility.

Here's the index card

hiya Charlie.
there was no man with the surname Nixon captured with the manchesters during that period,the list is dated 6th march 1915,also in the list is james roy,captured armentierres with the manchesters,nobody with the surname roy was taken prisoner,another man,albert sefton,manchesters regt captured armentierres,he was in the LNL regt,the list is a bit iffy regarding regiments.

Thanks Mack.

A couple more please if possible:

Is it possible to identify this Arthur Palmer http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/1578932/3/2/

Stanley Park (please don't tell me he came from Blackpool ;D ) is also a puzzle, could he be 203421 Bentley Park? http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/1148305/3/2/

Last one, William Parker 12th Bn, taken Bapaume 25.03.1918. There are quite a few in the MiCs, any ideas which one he is please.

hiya Charlie.
ive not had any luck with any of these,there was no man called Stanley park in the manchesters,the list that Arthur palmer is in,is stamped 31 may 1916,captured 8-5-15,he can only have been with the 1st or 2nd battalion,non of the other battalions were in france in may 1915,william parker 12th manchesters,there was only a pte 250675 Herbert William parker listed as 12th manchesters

I will check the rusholme AVL for Stanley park.

Well done Mack,
Herbert William and William Parker are one and the same person, both have the same DoB but different dates of capture 24 & 25 March 18.

Charles Little and James Oxendale are in the ICRC records somewhere, I found them both recently. There's no sign (yet) of Robert Nunn.
