Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders - PoW Other Ranks 1914

Having just completed some interesting research on a twice-wounded Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders regular who served from 1900 through to 1918, it seems a good enough reason to publish this list of men who served with the regiment and who, according to the list that I transcribed, became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before the 25th December 1914.

This list is compiled from three sources at The Imperial War Musuem, London:

B.O.2 1/112 is a four-page typed list from the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Prisoners of War Fund; letter dated 3rd January 1919 
B.O.2 1/113 is a single typed list from the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Prisoners of War Fund; no date 
B.O.2 1/115 is a five-page typed list from the records' office to Sir Ernest Goodhart dated 4th March 1919 

Some men appear on more than one list. 

The list below is an edited version of the full transcription which typically gives date of capture and home address. The full transcription is available for sale as a download or CD for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.

Sleeping Companions: 8515 Pte John Duncan Macpherson & 12860 Pte John Hadden; 1st Scots Guards

8515 Pte John Duncan Macpherson, 1st Scots Guards
 12860 Pte John Hadden, 1st Scots Guards

John Macpherson and John Hadden lie next to each other in the Guards Cemetery at Lesboeufs. I took this photograph on the 1st July 2016. Both men died on the 15th September 1916.

John Macpherson (McPherson on his medal index card) was a pre-war regular solider who had joined the Scots Guards in January 1913 and arrived in France on the 9th November 1914. No service record survives for him in WO 363 but he had certainly been in hospital in France in May 1915. A fragment in WO 363 lists him at Malassise Hospital on the 30th May. He was the son of John MacPherson, of The Aerodrome, Crail, Fife and it was not until 1919 that his body was found and re-buried in the Guards Cemetery. He was 21 years old. The inscription on his headstone reads: GRENADE THROWER / DIED AS A SOLDIER AT HIS POST.

John Hadden enlisted later than John Macpherson. He joined up in January 1915 and arrived in France on the 19th November that year. He was the son of William and Marion Hadden, of Harelaw, Longniddry, Haddington, East Lothian. His body too, was exhumed from the battlefield and brought in to the Guards' Cemetery at around the same time as John Macpherson. He was 22 years old.

The Scots Guards lost 110 men on the 15th September 1916. Fifteen of those men are buried at Lesboeufs but 83 have no known graves at all and are commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial.

Sleeping companions: 32866 Pte F Siddall, 16th Sherwood Foresters & R/16458 Rfm J Connor, 17th KRRC

32866 Private Fred Siddall, 16th Sherwood Foresters & 
R/16458 Rifleman James Connor, 17th KRRC

I was in France recently to mark the 100th anniversary of the Somme offensive and also the fateful attack the previous day on the Boar's Head at Richebourg L'Avoue. The two men above both fell on the 30th June 1916 and rest side by side at Le Touret Military Cemetery, Richebourg. I took the photo 100 years to the day since they died and decided to see what I could find out about them. Service records no longer survive for either man.

James Connor was born in central London: The Strand, Middlesex, and was living in West Kensington when he enlisted for wartime service only, at Holborn, in the King's Royal Rifle Corps. His regimental number indicates that he must have been issued with his number - at Winchester - in the second week of November 1915. He probably arrived in France by the end of April 1916 and thus had been overseas for barely two months when he was killed in action. At the time of his death, James was unmarried and both parents had pre-deceased him, His sister Margaret is recorded as his sole legatee and she would have been sent the memorial plaque and scroll as well as money owing to him at the time of his death.

Fred Siddall was also unmarried when he died of wounds on the 30th June 1916. He was the second oldest of four sons of Arthur and Annie Siddall, and one of seven children still living when the 1911 census was taken; four having already died, presumably in infancy. Fred is recorded on that census return as a fourteen-year-old coal miner's driver and was presumably working at the same pit as his nineteen-year-old brother, Albert and his 45-year-old father who are both indicated on the census as coal miner's driver and coal miner, respectively.

Fred initially joined the Royal Scots Fusiliers, his regimental number 20083 indicating that this must have been in August 1915. His regimental number for the Sherwood Foresters - 32866 - dates to a little later in the year, around mid-December 1915. Fred would have been about nineteen when he died of his wounds, his father Arthur noted as his next of kin.

Fred's elder brother Albert Siddall would be killed in action on the 31st March 1918 whilst serving with the same battalion of the Sherwood Foresters. His number, 25985, indicates that he joined the regiment in May 1915 and it remains a possibility, I suppose, that Fred later requested a transfer into the Sherwood Foresters so that he could be with his brother. Albert has no known grave and is commemorated on the Pozieres memorial.

King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry - PoW Other Ranks 1914

The 389 men listed below all became prisoners of war on or before the 25th December 1914. All served with the 2nd Battalion, King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry and over 300 of them were captured on the 26th August, a mere 12 days after the majority had disembarked at Havre. This from Ray Westlake's British Battalions in France & Belgium 1914:

"Moved to defensive trenches west of Le Cateau (25th). Order received from Brigade Headquarters instructing the battalion, "There will be NO retirement for the fighting troops; fill up your trenches with water, food and ammunition, as far as you can." Enemy attacked (26th). Positions held until eventually surrounded on three sides. There was much hand-to-hand fighting. Lieutenant Colonel Bond records in his war history of the regiment, "There was no surrender. The occupants of the trenches were mobbed and swamped by the riding tide of grey-coated Germans." Fighting ceased about 4.30pm and survivors withdrew along the Reumont road to Estrees, then (27th) to Ollezy."

The original record - a nineteen-page hand-written list sent to Sir Ernest Goodhart on the 3rd February 1919 - is held at the Imperial War Museum in London (reference B.O.2 1/137). Filmed some years ago, the microfilm is difficult to read in places.  My full transcription includes next of kin and their address.

The medals above were issued to 9738 Private Watling whose next of kin is listed as his father, W Watling, of 173 Ann's Street. Norwich. I bought Richard's medals yesterday; also those of his son who served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. Richard, who had enlisted in June 1908, was in Ireland in 1914 and was possibly one of those men captured on the 26th August. News that he was missing in action was published in The Times on the 26th October.

Royal Army Medical Corps - PoW Other Ranks 1914

There are 365 men in this list of Royal Army Medical Corps soldiers captured on or before the 25th December 1914. The names appear on a nine-page typed list sent in by the officer in charge of records, RAMC, to Sir Ernest Goodhart in February 1919. These days, that list is field at the Imperial War Museum, catalogue reference, B.O.2 1/127.

The vast majority of the medical index cards for these men DO NOT note that they were prisoners of war and so, apart from the difficult-to-search ICRC PoW database, this may be the first time that this list has been published; quite a nice bonus for medal collectors, I would have thought. A lot of the men served with 4th Field Ambulance and my notations below are simply as a result of looking at medal index cards for some of these men. Again, most of theese MICs note the Field Ambulance served with.

Additional information contained on this typed list includes home addresses for the majority of the men, plus additional notes for some of them. I will be happy to sell copies of this list for £20. Drop me a line if interested.
