Bedfordshire Regiment - PoW Other Ranks 1914


The following men were all serving with regular battalions of The Bedfordshire Regiment, when they became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. There are 173 names in this list.  Read more about this Prisoner of War data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from the following sources which are now housed at the Imperial War Museum:

1. B.O.2 1/108. A five-page handwritten list from Bedfordshire Regiments' [sic] Prisoners of War Care Committee dated 5th January 1919
.

2. B.O.2 1/110. A nine-page handwritten list to Sir Ernest Goodhart from colonel i/c No 2 Records, Warley, Essex; letter dated 18th January 1919

My full transcription of this Bedfordshire Regiment Prisoners of War roll call of other ranks (not reproduced here) also contains the battalion, and home address or next of kin 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.
