Looking for soldiers that served prior to WW1? Find My Past is the best resource for finding information about Victorian-era Soldiers.
By far the best resource for WW1 research. WW1 Service Records, pension papers, medal index cards and casualty information.
Search through millions of archived British Newspaper Articles to find any references to your ancestors.

This photo was kindly provided by the grandson of Private Samuel Ernest Jones (6th Battalion). Samuel is standing in the rear rank, third from the left.

    Hello, I have just come across your website and it looks interesting. Mr grandfather a William Duerden was in the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, I have 2 letters which he wrote to his mother and sisters, in 1916 he was in Gallipoli and got wounded on 5 April and then sent up river to Doulalia and then Kuldana in India, he gives much information of the life in the trenches. I will send you copies of them, The originals I have donated, with other postcards and photos to the Imperial War Museum, London. I also have a copy of a postcard which he sent to his sweetheart (my grandmother) the postmark looks like 8th November 1914, from Felixstowe, have you any idea why he would be there? Also, do you know which port the Mauretania sailed on 20 August 1915, they arrived at Suvla Bay on 28 August 1915 . I am away with the grandchildren next week for a week (school holidays), so will not be able to contact you until I get back, but hope we can email further with all the information I have, and hope you can give me more information that you have. I look forward to your contact next week, Best wishes, Pat Cohen
