Pte John Murphy
« on: September 23, 2023, 07:53:32 AM »
Hi All,

I have been researching my great grandfather John Murphy who fought in World War One. I have his TA service number and his regiment number. I  can find his medal card which lists a victory medal.

I'm trying to piece together where he fought and struggling to work out his battalion.

 Can anyone help?

Name: Pte John Murphy
Regiment number 3717 / 158156
Manchester regiment / machine gun corps

 There are a couple of free books on the internet of the
 7th Bn.
 That may help.
