The Household Battalion


The Household Battalion was an infantry battalion formed from reserve units of the Household Cavalry: 1st Life Guards, 2nd Life Guards and Royal Horse Guards. It was formed on 1st September 1916 and filled rapidly. Numbers 1 to 1234, for instance, all date to 1st September, and a reserve battalion was already recruiting by October 1916. I pick the story up below in October 1916, the small sample on this blog post running until September 1917:

1469 joined on 18th October 1916
1574 joined on 4th November 1916
1885 joined on 10th November 1916
2088 joined on 2nd December 1916
2484 joined on 4th January 1917
2671 joined on 17th February 1917
2689 joined on 28th March 1917
2704 joined on 5th April 1917
3163 joined on 20th May 1917
3285 joined on 12th July 1917
3485 joined on 6th August 1917
3604 joined on 3rd September 1917

Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment - PoW Other Ranks 1914


The roll-call below is of men who were serving with Royal West Kent Regiment when they became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. There are 158 names in this list; significantly fewer losses sustained by some other regiments but still representing a serious loss of trained soldiers. They were all men that that British Army could ill-afford to lose. You can read more about this Prisoner of War data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from a single source held at the Imperial War Museum:

B.O.2 1/132 is 4-page, typed list sent by No 2 Infantry Record Office, Staines Road, Hounslow, dated 14th January 1919  


My full transcription of this Royal West Kent Regiment Prisoners of War roll call of other ranks (not reproduced here) also contains the men's home addresses.

I have transcribed the records as they were written at the time. Note that the majority of the numbers should correctly have been prefixed with the letter L/ indicating regular enlistment. The one obvious exception is John Bailey whose three-digit number, 522, stood out like a sore thumb. On checking, I realised that his correct number was S/522, indicating that he was a member of the Special Reserve.

As far as the other men are concerned, the longest serving man here is L/4493 William Cridland whose number dates to November 1895. The newest recruit is 10243 Private F C Thomas whose regimental number indicates that he joined eighteen years later than William Cridland, in November 1913. I shall be pleased to receive for publication on this post, any other additional information or photographs of any of these men.

Middlesex Regiment - PoW Other Ranks 1914


The men listed below were all serving with The Middlesex Regiment, when they became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. There are 397 names in this list - the equivalent of nearly four companies, or half a battalion under the old eight-company system. Remember that these were trained men, regular soldiers who the British Army could ill-afford to lose. You can read more about this Prisoner of War data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from the following sources held at the Imperial War Museum:

B.O.2 1/224: a 12-page typed and undated document. No clues as to sender or recipient.
B.O.2 1/226: a 6-page hand-written document on official Army Form B.104-115, used to report PoWs.  This form introduced as a result of Army Council Instruction 277 of February 1916.

Some of the men appear on both of these lists and those that do usually have slight variations in their regimental numbers (224 tends to omit the L/ prefix whilst 226 is more fastidious). Most of the men here would have been regular soldiers rather than special reserve but I have not attempted to correct these hundred-year old lists.

My full transcription of this Middlesex Regiment Prisoners of War roll call of other ranks (not reproduced here) also contains some or all of the following: battalion, home address, next of kin address, date of capture, additional notes and remarks. 

Any errors in transcription are my own.

The following men were all serving with regular battalions of The Northumberland Fusiliers, when they became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. There are 152 names in this list. Read more about this Prisoner of War data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from B.O.2 1/194 at the Imperial War Museum. This is a seven-page typed list of men dated 20th January 1919 and sent by the officer in charge of infantry records at York.

1/6th Northumberland Fusiliers, April 1915


I've often thought that you stand more chance of finding an other rank named in a unit war diary if he was a casualty early on in the war - or at least early in the life of a particular war diary. The theory doesn't always hold good but it does for some war diaries. Remember, the diarists were new to the job, they had no idea how long the war would last, and their object was to record everything that happened. 

The 1/6th Northumberland Fusiliers, a Territorial Force battalion, arrived on the Western Front on the 21st April 1915 and, one hundred years ago today, they suffered catastrophic casualties at St Julien in Belgium. One of my Chailey veterans, Henry G Smith, was amongst those casualties and you can read about him on my Chailey 1914-1918 blog by clicking on his name. He won the DCM on that day but the 26th April 1915 marked the end of the war for him. He returned to England and was discharged physically unfit.

The 1/6th NF diarist diligently recorded the names of all casualties for April 1915 and I have transcribed these details below. There are 493 names in total and their status is as recorded by the diarist at the time. I have organised the other rank casualties in regimental number order; ranging from men who had previously seen service with the Volunteer Force to men who had joined the battalion in April 1915. In due course I may add further detail to this roll.
