Thanks John. I see a few of the RD defenders rejoined and done their bit in England. I'm interested in those that served in the action over seas. Or even KIA ?
Somewhere on the forum, there is a post that states an old man was taken out of the trenches just as they were about to go over the top, it was discovered he was a Zulu War veterant!

24th this is the chap in-question!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


"VOLUNTEERS PUT TOWN IN THE RECORD BOOKS
SOWERBY Bridge claimed a record for the country - if not the empire - in having both the youngest and oldest soldiers to have served in the trenches.

Imbued with a sense of patriotic duty, 70-year-old Mr James White of Grange Place and 14-year-old George Smith of Belmont had lied about their ages to recruiting officers in order to get into the Army.

In the case of Mr White, who came under fire as a sapper with the Royal Engineers, his deception was discovered after four months when an Army doctor discovered he was an old man.

Although he pleaded with the authorities to remain, they reminded him of Army regulations and he was discharged with a clean sheet and good record.

George Smith, whose physical fitness and appearance belied his age, was anxious to join up immediately war broke out - even though he had just turned 14.

His parents were unable to dissuade him and in September 1914 the plucky lad joined the 2nd Duke of Wellington’s West Riding Regiment, going to France the following March.

He took part in the ferocious Battle of Hill 60 in which the Dukes were badly hit and subsequently saw heavy fighting in other battles.

After 20 months service under fire, his mother finally claimed him back after convincing officers of her son’s subterfuge"

Hopefully Pete will move his memorial to the Grave section!

90th Did you go to Gallipoli for a reason ie a relative? Or just out of general respect for the austrailians who fell?

Hi John
The Gallipoli story is very big in Australia and New Zealand obviously due to the numbers who went and died there from Aust and NZ . April 25th , the day of the landings is a public holiday here in Australia , it's known as Anzac Day . It's commemorated out here more than Armistice Day , which , as you are aware is 11th of the 11th . No relation served there but I did have a Great Uncle who died of wounds at Passchendaele in 1917 on the Western Front . So yes , it was out of respect to those chaps who went , and those that never returned .  Salute

As the Gallipoli Landings have been mentioned above, 214,000 allied troops were killed, died of disease or were wounded during the Dardanelles campaign.

Included in those figures are 1,600 all ranks of the 2nd Battalion, South Wales Borderers, and 500 from the 4th (Service) Battalion, South Wales Borderers.

The 1st Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers lost more than half of its battalion's strength on 25th April 1915 - 600 all ranks - but still went on to win six Victoria Crosses before breakfast.

Could history have been different, but the inaptitude of the Zulu War veteran tasked with the pursuit of Goeben and Breslau?

Springbok,

Don't forget that Henry Lukin, himself, served in the Anglo-Zulu War in the N.N.C. and was wounded at the Battle of Ulundi.

90 years. Not enough treasures in the world to pay that man. His grave needs to be posted on the forum.  So come 1879graves, Rai, LIttlehand get searching.
