I am preparing a manuscript on the activities of the Loyal North Lancashires in East Africa 1914 - 1918 & I am trying to name as many Loyals as possible who served in:
2nd Bn Loyal North Lancashire Regiment (in theatre & on recuperation in South Africa)
"Logan's Battery" (No 1 Light then No 6 Field Battery)
The Loyals Machine Gun Companies
259 Machine Gun Company, Machine Gun Corps
The Mounted Infantry Company
Cole's Scouts & other local units
"Zulu Company" (1 EA Div Signals Company)
Lines of Communication duties
The King's African Rifles (on attachment)
Indian Army units in theatre (on attachment)
West African Frontier Force units in theatre (on attachment)
As prisoners in German East Africa
I am using war & personal diaries, museum documents, journal articles, regimental & general histories, London Gazette entries & CWGC lists but I would really appreciate any other information, however brief, or advice from yourselves.
(ex-1 LOYALS 61-63)
There is a large brass memorial plaque in Preston Parish church that lists every casualty from the 2nd Battalion L.N.L.REG. I have photographed it in the past and could send you a copy if you like. There are also a few newspaper articles including photos of casualties and a couple of group photos taken in Africa in the old Preston Guardian, on microfilm in the Harris reference library in Preston.
