Dick,
before I ask you to look up some of my men, do you have lists for Seaford? there seem to have been over a dozen schools in Seaford or there abouts.

If you do I'll post some of the names to you, starting with the ones I can't find if you don't mind.

Thanks in advance.

Annie:  Are your names Boer War officers, KIA, WWI?  I found a Captain Ernest Trevor James, Welch Regt., born in 1894, died 1949.  Is he your Capt E T James? 
Still working on these but need to have a small idea of the time period I am working with.  They do not appear to be Boer War casualties as were your others. 
Regards.  Dick



Hi Dick !

All I have is 2 photographs noted Capt ET James
and this
27-9-1901 The Prince of Wales' Volunteers (South Lancashire Regiment').
To be Brevet Major.
Captain E. T. James.

He was with the regiment at Spion Kop - I can't find him KIA - there's no mention of him anywhere as far as I can see! Theres more than one census possibility for him - so I have no idea!
Your guy would be too young - one of the photos I have is Nov 1899 and he looks about late 20's

Dear Dick,
I am interested in people who attended the Liverpool Institute. I have a list of their Roll of Honour, but I would like to know  where I might find a list, class lists perhaps, OTC lists, post war reunion lists - of others who served and survived. My grandfather & his brothers were there and their letters often refer to people (serving) whom I suspect were schoolchums.
It's long list so I only ask generally.
thanks
julian


If you have the Role of Honour for the Liverpool Institute, perhaps you would be so kind as to look for the names of any Lawsons.
I am researching William George Lawson, who was in 2/10 Btn Liverpool Scottish
and his brother Walter (regiment unknown), born 1889 and 1892 respectively.
I do not know where they were educated but if you have successfully located any of the other class lists you mention, there is always a chance they could be there.

Thanks, K Lawson.

Hi Dick
Do you have a register for the Kings Grammar School, Macclesfield?
If not, I may be able to give you a copy of recent research which traces all their WW1 casualties. It contains some artillery men.

As it turns out I already have this photo but didn't know its source. Where I wonder did the info in this Roll of Honour come from originally. Whereever it was there must be more, I just have to keep digging. I have his service record from the PRO and also from the SG regimental museum but am not making any more headway. The Westminster Dragoons museum can't help me till the end of next year as they are temporary accomodation. I also have a copy of the war diary for his unit but this doesn't help me at all.
I feel another trip to the PRO coming on.
Thanks for all this & the speedy response.

It will be a pleasure. I'll try to get hold of an original copy (limited supplies), otherwise it's a long session on the photocopier. I'll let you know when it's ready to send.

Dick,

Is there any chance of a look-up for a RFA officer? His school is unfortunately unknown but i'm hoping he may appear on your database of Artillery Officers.

Many thanks,
