Charlie.
I found alberts photo and details in my database,his left leg was amputated,thats what they meant by general paralysis.
his parents received news that he had lost his leg the day after they heard that his brother percy had also had his left leg amputated while serving at Gallipoli with the 1/9th battalion.

mack ;D

Just goes to show how easy it is to get the wrong meaning in a translation. It would have been much easier to have written that his leg had been amputated.

The latest (small) update of the database is now available on the main site. Due to holidays and other personal commitments the next update will be at the end of July.

Mack,
I picked this up on another forum.

Edmund Bagshaw 18th Bn, serial 106 in our database, the ICRC have him as 15145 a number that doesn't seem to exist. Should he be 61198?

Thanks Mack, I'll amend his number. 15145 could well have been from his training days and he wasn't aware of the new one at the time of capture.

you came up with the same thought I had,i was guessing he was renumbered shortly before or after disembarkation and he was unaware of the change.

Mack,
Can you help with these three please.

7049 Cpl RP Thompson 16th Bn - I cant find him in the MiCs or find a 7049 Thompson
http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/2215961/3/2/

Wilfred Thompson (no number) presumably 2/6th Bn - which Wilfred Thompson is he?
http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/963701/3/2/

William Taylor serial 3172 in our database, I can't find anyone near in the ICRC records. Do you have anything more on him?

Thanks
Charlie

Thanks Mack,
Everything ties in with Wilfred Thompson.

There is only William Taylor's address in our database, it's an old entry from before 2009, he's the one without a number. I've been through all the Taylors and there isn't an address that matches. These are all the William Taylors in the ICRC database.

Are you using the quick reply option, the smilies don't work when using it.

Thanks so much for a link to the updated WW1 POW database. I've now found out where my grandfather was taken to - Dulmen then Wahn.
