Another question Iam hoping you can help with. After the information gained in October, I have downloaded the war diaries. I know that my Grand father was on leave in December 1916 as he was married on the 13th. However, I can find no entry in the diaries of his return. Could he have joined another battalion? It has been with great interest that we have been able to trace the battalions positions on the ground during the battle for Montuaban and Trones Wood. Thanks again for all your help.

Hi All,

I realise this is an old post and have emailed + PM rendle.  George is shown on 1911 census as a teacher at Manchester Warehouseman and Clerks Orphans' School in Cheadle.  My great uncle Douglas was one of the 'inmates'.  George's Service Record is on line.

This thread shows the real depth of the forum.  Thanks everyone.

Returning to an old thread, it turns out George Swaine was a Geography Master at WACOS before the war and published a book prior to hostlilities
