Durham Light Infantry - Other Rank PoWs 1914

This is an extract of men from the 1st and 2nd Battalions, Durham Light Infantry, who were captured by the enemy and became Prisoners of War on or before the 25th December 1914. Read more about this data source on my 1914 PoWs page. This data is taken from two lists sent to Sir Ernest Goodhart: an undated hand-written list (source unknown) and a typed list sent by the Colonel in Charge of Infantry Records, York on the 20th January 1919.  My full transcription of this DLI data (not reproduced here) also contains the following information:
