I discovered an archive newspaper clipping from findmypast.com, which lists my great uncle John Lee Price as being wounded in 1917. I now need to look at the other Gloucestershire Regiment soldiers who are also listed and find out where, when and in which battalion they were wounded. Hopefully this will help clear up the mystery of whether John was ever in the 8th battalion, as listed in his medal roll.
I am also researching another great uncle (by marriage) Alfred Hill. Luckily his service record survives, but I would still like to get an idea of where the regiments he served in were during his time. However to do this Imhave to wait fr some of the diaries to be digitised by the National Archives and also get a look at some held by the Royal Engineers museum, which is quite a long way away.
One more avenue of enquiry is the Western Front Association, which is digitising thousands of WW1 pension records. I have sent in a request form for some of my relatives to be searched for, but it will take them some time.
So although this blog hasn't been updated for a while, I'm still here researching!
