Hello, my Uncle served with this regiment and I am trying to find out a bit more about his service. His name was ERIC GEORGE and his MIC gives 2 regimental numbers 2087 and 420955. From family heresay i gather that he was wounded/gassed at Gallipoli . He was my late father's older brother but I only met him a few times and he leaves few contactable descendants so my research is slow and painful!!! Sarah h

Lt Col (Brevet Colonel) David De Lara Cohen, who I believe commanded 10th London Regimental Depot, from 1915. He had previously been CO of 1st London Division Engineers. I have his 1911 Coronation Medal, privately named to him. He was a stock broker by profession. There is a photo of him in the British Jewry Book of Honour.

Hi James,

My great grandfather, David Martin Vincent, served with the 10th Londons in Palestine and was KIA on 19/9/1918. His number was 424457 and he joined them on 16/2/18 from the Labour Corps in Egypt. Do you have any information on him or photos of other 10th Londons soldiers etc from this capaign? I will try to find his photo for you if you are interested?

Many thanks,

Lee

Terry
I was told De lara Cohen's 1911 Coronation was in someones collection by a member of a different Forum that I am a member of.
I have His Victorian 'Volunteer Officers Decoration', also privately engraved, in my collection, I am finding it difficult to get any real indepth research on him, although I do know he was very active in the Jewish Boy's Brigade.
