Mack, thanks a lot for all those. It would be helpful if you could go through the "A"s and see if you have any info in your archives regarding: Coy, Bn, place and date of capture for those that are missing. I have all the info for them from ICRC site, but there are still gaps.

Thanks Mack, he must another Thomas Ashcroft then, PA1780 lists a Thomas Ashcroft but no number or Bn. The number came from Timbermans list of 1st & 2nd Bn PoWs. I must have added 2 and 2 together and got 5 :) Or is he another Hollis?

Thomas Ashcroft
I wonder how he got on the list.
He was always in the 9th Bn,
on his service records and the MIC.
On his MIC it says 4a Africa and did
not go overseas till 1915?

There are two other Thomas Ashcrofts 32765 and 3041 is it possible that somehow one of the numbers got mixed up with another?

3041 Thomas Ashcroft didn't serve on active service,he was employed on conducting service to france,this entails serving aboard ships and ferries going to and from france,to watch for deserters,sabatours etc

32765 Thomas Ashcroft,his number is too high for a soldier captured in 1914-15,it wasn't issued till late 1915 early 1916

Thanks Mack and Timberman, I think in that case it must have been a mistake by the Germans.

I had a look at other soldiers with the name
Ashcroft in the 1st or 2nd Bn but nothing
tied in with them being POW!

Thanks Timberman, I've tried using Thomas as the surname - I've come across a couple of entries were the fore and surname have been the wrong way round - also with no success.

Another suspect name, ICRC gives him as William Barends, taken Guillemont 09.08.1916 and held at Schneidem�hl,  no number or Bn. A search of the MICs draws a blank.

And another one. The ICRC give him as 54661 Pte Lewis Arscott A Coy 16th Bn. The MICs show neither 54661 or Arscott to the Manchesters ???
