It's a good thing you are stubborn :)

Have you any idea on the correct Bn for 203414 James (or Frank) Charles Halsall? PA 32037 gives him as 2/4th Bn.

PA 34187 lists a 412965 Albert Havenscroft 2/6th Bn taken at Hargicourt. I presume this was 302767 Albert Ravenscroft, if Ravenscroft is correct, was he still with the Manchesters when captured?

he may have been confused as to which battalion he was actually still serving with when he was repatriated,he was posted to the 16th battalion on 13-3-18 while a POW.

Thanks Mack, I've got him now, he is also indexed as "Hayward" trouble was there is an Arthur Hayward also without a number in the index. After checking the MiCs I came to the conclusion that Arthur Hayward was Arthur Hayward as he has a one off name if you follow what I mean ;D

Any other thoughts on Ravenscroft?

Hi Charlie,
I spotted this link to a PoW that is not on the schedule. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/311436484140?item=311436484140&lgeo=1&vectorid=229466&rmvSB=true
2871 L/Cpl E C Hillman or 1935
The 1914/15 Star suggests an alternate number 1935 in 1st Bttn disembarking 6b (??) 25/8/1915 and discharge 30/3/1919. BWM/VM Roll shows the 1935 No and attached to 1st Ox & Bucks.  It's poss the 2871 No relates them, although it's a pretty low number and 9675 seems to be that No. He was a pre-war regular with 1st LF 10th Hussars and 1st Manchesters. Captured with Ox & Bucks 26/5/1916. Retuned from Turkey 22/11/1918. Went on back serve in India in Jan 1919 before discharge.

Thanks Tim, I'll add him to the database. I had a quick look at the ICRC site and his index card lists him as 2871 Manchesters. He was held at Kara Hissar and repatriated 22.11.1918. His wife was in Bangalore at the time. There is something else written on the index card something to do with the Red Cross but it's in French so I haven't a clue ;D
