1st Life Guards - PoW Other Ranks 1914


The following list of 16 1st Life Guards NCOs and men has been transcribed from the Imperial War Museum's collection, specifically the following items:
  • B.O.2 1/59.  A nominal roll of repatriated prisoners of war from the 1st Life Guards and Dragoons attached to the 1st Life Guards. This list was submitted on 22nd January 1919 by the officer in charge of 1st Life Guards records.
  • B.O.2 1/166. A single page letter and single page typed list to Sir Ernest Goodhart which was sent from 7 Balfour Place, Park Lane, London W1 and dated 20th December 1918.
My full transcription of this collection (not reproduced here) also contains home addresses for most of the men.
