Can you clear up the number for John Morley 2nd Bn please, is he 8600 or 8601? The online MiCs give 8600, his RC records 8601. Both 6800 and 6801 are already in the database as either John or T Morley.

Thanks
Charlie

He's listed as 8601 in the medal rolls
and on his MIC he's listed as a POW

Thanks Mack.

24910 Frank Morley, an old entry in the database, is listed as 2/5th Bn taken 21.03.1916. There isn't an ICRC record for him and 24190 isn't Frank Morley. Any ideas please.

I can't sort this one out at all - 337869 Sgt Harry Morton,  it doesn't look like a Manchesters number and nothing turns up in the MiCs under Morton or Norton.

does it give an address Charlie,he couldn't have been captured on 21-3-16,the 2/5th batt was still in England,it may have been entered in error in the database,theres no Manchester with the army number 24910.

I would delete him Charlie,i think hes a error from the old days when we had barely any info,hes definitely not a Manchester,there may be a few others from the same period.

Mack,
10175 Joseph Mullin 16th Bn, 6 Tudor St and J Mullins (no number) 16th Bn, 15 Worsley St, are both in the database but have no ICRC index cards, are they from your archives?

Two old entries
2769 Patrick Mullin 2nd Bn - no index card or further information.
9540 Munroe, no rank or forename, 2nd Bn - no index card, also 9540 is not as far as I can tell a Manchesters number.

Can you help with any of these.
Thanks
Charlie

hiya Charlie,2769 p.mullin and 9540 munroe were from a list of 2nd battalion men captured in 1914,theres no 9540 in the MICs and no further info on 2769 other than him being in the POW list.

j.mullin was on the redoubt,he wrote to pte hopkinsons family when he was mortally wounded on the redoubt,but I could never determine what his number was,the address[worsley st]was from a list in the 16th battalion signal sections history.

10175 joe mullin was definitely in the RC records,but there was no card for him,he was in a camp list.

mack ;D
ps.the 1914 2nd batt list was quite reliable when it came to number and surname,but the Christian name initials sometimes needed checking.

evening Charlie.
I cant find anything,6981 was the number of walter hallam,2nd battalion,he wasn't captured,the date January 1915 means he could only have been in the 1st or 2nd battalion,but theres nobody resembling this name in the MICs.
