A lady has contacted me, as her Grandfather served with 9th Sherwoods. The family story is that he was sent out to Archangel sometime in 1918 but I cannot find an evidence of this. No N & D Battalions went to Archangel.
He was 13357 Pte William Henry Allen and apparently his pal Harold Garner shared the same fate.
The story is that when freed they had a rail pass to the Russian border and then had to walk home, taking 6 weeks!
His MIC is of little help and his records did not survive.
Are there any records were I could prove or disprove this?
Any help will be gratefully received
