I have been putting together a list of 8th Hants POW's
From a list taken during the later part of the Great War and archived as FO 383-341,
I have 330768 Swadling F located at Yarbachi 13/11/1917, but Soldiers died lists 330768 Swadbury Frank having died 12/8/1917.
A medal card for Swadling Frank, has the number 2329, has had the number 330768 crossed out, so there must have been a mix up even then.
As I don't have access to the medal cards anymore can anybody tell me if there is a 8th Hants card to a Swadbury F, and what number he has just to check it is 330768, and if it has a preceding four digit number.
I am assuming that 2329 Swadling F was a POW, but due to poor records was recorded as 330768.
Whilst it was 330768 Swadbury Frank, who died
