King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry - Other Rank PoWs 1914


There are 385 men on this list of men from the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry who were captured by the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. I have transcribed this data from the following Imperial War Museum collection:

B.O.2 1/137: a 19-page hand-written list sent to Sir Ernest Goodhart, dated 3rd February 1919.

My full transcription of these men (not reproduced here) also contains the home address and/or next of kin address of all of the men. 

The full transcription is available for sale for £25. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.


For more information about these so-called 'Princess Mary tin PoWs' see my 1914 PoWs page. The majority of these men will also have records published by the International Committee of the Red Cross. Searching is free; finding your man is another matter entirely.


I research soldiers!
