L/Cpl Alfred Leigh - I'm not sure that he is Manchesters. PA5054 leads to a dead end - it should be 5045. Any thoughts please.

Thanks Timberman, that rules him out I think. I wonder if what looks like "app" before Manchesters has any bearing on things. I found his second entry under PA5045 a hospital list from 29 May 16, it doesn't throw any more light on things.

I have just realised something,there are some errors in the database.it concerns the 19th manchesters,those captured before February 1918 were 19th batt,those taken after,would be with the 16th,17th or whichever battalion they were posted to.
CSM 12256 fred nuttall is down as 16th batt,it should be 19th batt,he was taken on 23rd july 1916,most of those taken before February 1918 were posted to their respective battalions[16th/17th batts] while POWs.

Mack,
Out of the 100 19th Bn entries in the database only two are affected:

12029 Cpl Thomas Burton
48640 Pte Harry Fairbrother

Do you have their correct Battalions?

His address shows up as the same as 1285 Dmr Harry Button 2nd Bn, are they brothers and one is a typo? The names are correct according to the MiCs.
