Rifle Brigade - other rank PoWs 1914


This is an edited roll of over 304 Other Ranks serving with the Rifle Brigade 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.

The majority of these men were 1st Battalion men and most of the men listed below were captured on the 26th August 1914. This data has been transcribed from a single source at the Imperial War Museum, namely B.O.2 1/184 which is a six-page typed list dated 6th January 1919. 

My full transcription of this data (not reproduced here) also contains the date of capture and home address against the majority of the names, albeit home address is often given simply as "Rifle Depot, Winchester".

The full transcription is available for sale as a download or CD for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.
