Thanks Mack, I've added all of those apart from John Thomas I can't see him on PA 28358 and his index card only lists PA33920 which doesn't record his death.
Can you check the PA number please.

Are the Battalions known please for the following:

53846 Ernest Morgan

William Norris. His index card gives him as 18th Bn taken 21.07.1918, so obviously incorrect. His index card doesn't give a number, but having looked at the MiCs 84784 seems the most likely.

Thanks
Charlie

hiya Charlie.
heres two rare ones.already in the database,a bit more info

pte 7764 George brookes,high lane,stockport,13th battlaion,captured 7-3-17 on the dorian front,POW in Bulgaria,in phillipolis camp,captured with pte 7858 Robert,allen coward,also 13th battalion.both repat 1-12-18 at dover

nobody knew anything about these two men,the records office said they had no records of any manchesters being prisoners from this front,they only found out about them when they sent a letter begging for boots and clothing,they are probably the only two captured in this theatre.

mack.
ps.curious how they ended up on a repat ship that seems to have sailed from france[R53233]

Thanks Mack,
There's a Washington in America as well, that does surprise me ;D
I reckon I've found William Norris, how they managed to connect him with the Manchesters is beyond me.

Bulgaria was occupied by the French after it's surrender, the French organised the repatriation of the French and British PoWs, so presumably they all where shipped to France first. There's an interesting article re PoWs in Bulgaria here:

http://cantabulgarian.soc.srcf.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Rumen-Cholakov-Prisoners-of-War-in-Bulgaria-during-the-First-World-War.pdf

Page 62 refers to repatriatiion.

Charlie

PS thanks for the update on those two rare birds, they're the only two 13th Bn in the data base. Good work :)

42097 John Thomas Nutter is listed by the ICRC as 18th Bn, he was taken on 21.03.1918. Is his correct Bn known please.
