Stubbs  is the right one, he is the only 1st Bn to die on that date.

No John Bradport listed on the CWGC web site as dying with
the Manchester's

Thanks Mack.
That explains the Stubbs/Bradburn issue.
Hope you had a good holiday.

Walter Oxley was with the MGC at the time of his capture according to the ICRC records, although he is clearly wearing a Manchester's cap badge.
http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/1296313/3/2/

His Manchester's number (15916) suggests that he was a 1914-15 enlistment into one of the Kitchener service battalions.

The PoW database has been updated again with mainly additions and updates of those in Turkish and Bulgarian hands.

walter oxleys service number is one that was issued to the 14th battalion,which became a training reserve battalion,his MGC number is a very early number,i doubt if he served more than a few weeks with the 14th battalion.

Tim,
I've had a good look through the ICRC records - including the ones for the German Army, just in case - and have not been able to find him. Not all the burials were notified to the RC.
