another quick update. We've now transcribed 85% of the South Lancs Medal Rolls, with over 32,000 entries now. The SLR 1914 Star and SLR 1915 Star have been completed. So has the section of the Labour Corps 1915 Star roll showing ex-SLR men. Nearly there with SLR BWM/VM. We'll soon be starting on SWB, extracting South Lancs entries from the Preston and Shrewsbury rolls. If anyone comes across South Lancs references in other units' rolls we'd appreciate any info. Similarly if anyone has images of other units' rolls that show ex-SLR men then we'd really appreciate copies so we could transcribe and add to our database. This would particularly apply to Labour Corps and Lancashire Fusiliers, units many SLR men ended up with.
