Connaught Rangers - other rank PoWs 1914


This is an edited roll of Other Ranks serving with the 2nd Battalion, Connaught Rangers 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 has been transcribed from ten separately catalogued lists held at the Imperial War Museum, namely B.O.2 1/67 to B.O.2 1/76 which are ten separately typed lists of Connaught Rangers men dating to the 31st January 1919.  My full transcription (not reproduced here) also contains the following information against some or all of the names:


Home address
Next of kin
Next of kin's address
Notes
Transcriber's notes

There are over 300 names on this list, representing a wealth of military service, and a lost asset that would be sorely felt by the regiment and the British Army generally. 
The full transcription is available for sale as a download or CD for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.


I also offer a comprehensive, fast and cost-effective military history research service. Follow the link for more information. 

You can work out when the other men would have joined by referring to my post on Connaught Rangers regimental numbers. Here then, are the men, all 305 of them. Any errors in transcription are my own:
