A number for Job Steele Webb, I can't find him in the MiCs

Eugene Patient the ICRC have him as 63rd Regt, so if he's Manchesters 1st Bn. http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/4520043/3/2/

Thanks
Charlie

hiya Charlie.
Eugene patient,this man doesn't exist,there were only about a dozen men who served with the manchesters called Eugene,non of them come close

William parken 9th batt,the closest I can find is 39738 William parkin,9th battalion

Christopher painter was RMLI

nothing on Charles pawling,theres another huge list for the lechfeld camp PA42601,i use a system for searching tough names,i check other men on the list to see if they appear on other camps lists,sometimes the man ime looking for appears in these lists and his name has been corrected,ive found a lot using this search pattern

Thanks Mack,
I'll leave Pawling and Parkin in for the time being. I had a look on the Ashton Territorials site for Parken, the nearest on there is a Cpl A Parkin.

hiya Charlie
pawlings service number and the time of his capture are a bit dodgy,his number is a bit high for march 1918,these numbers usually appear near the end of the war,if you check the Manchester hill survivors lists,theres nobody with a service number in the 70000 series.

Thanks Mack,
I had another look through the MiCs and there is nothing even close to 71886 as a Manchester number and very few anywhere else. I'll keep hold of his details for the time being, something might turn up that makes sense of him.

The latest update of the database is now on the main site. There are now over 3000 entries and the names beginning with P, R, S, T, W and Y still need to be entered!

Which one is he please:
Edwin Potts 2/5th Bn, either 202203 or 20458. I'd guess 202203 but I have been known to be wrong in the past ;D

Thanks
