Hi All

If anyone has a copy of "The Noble 24th by Norman Holme" could they please help with an entry.

I am interested in 2266 Corporal William Sims, 2nd Battalion and what says about him.

Many thanks

Andy

Some of the information matches and others do not.

Looks like more researched needed.

Graves
Thank you for this post. Holmes would have been the first to congratulate you. He was an excellent researcher but like the rest of us was not perfect. There are a number of errors in the Noble 24th. Well done for correcting this one.

Hi Julian

I agree with you "like the rest of us not perfect".

With modern research methods we can still update things and contribute to history for the benefit of all.
