Ok thanks Mack, Kenny sounds good, I'll have a look what can be found under Kenny and it should be possible to tie the two together.

Charles Kenny is the man, he's also listed as being held at G�tersloh in Dec 1915. Well done again Mack ;D

Is the correct Bn for 34425 Pte Leonard F Higgins known please, PA24028 lists him as 14th Bn.

PA25648 lists a William Hoaldsworth (no number), C Coy 17th Bn, born 21.12.1898 in Ardwick. Any help as to his correct name and number would be appreciated.

Thanks
Charlie

Charlie,
https://twitter.com/SKnight1921/status/647879487678509056 - Hope this works.
This provides info about L/Cpl William Chubb, of Manchesters who died as a PoW in Germany on 26/10/1918.  His family were from Chorley.  I can't find anything more about him and Chubb is hidden in icrc index.  I wonder is you can find him?
