Army Lists 1914-18

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Litotes, Jul 6, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does any kind soul have a copy of one of these on their desk?

    I am looking for any information on:

    John Howard Heuston (2Lt to Capt)
    Royal Garrison Artillery or Horse Artillery

    I have a copy of his medal roll (well, I should if the National Archive lets go) but his record of service was destroyed in WW2.


  2. I don't but if you belong to RUSI they have a full set in the library.

    Portsmouth central library if you are that way, or in the National Archives in Kew.
  4. Thanks, Guys, the Prince Consort's Library in Aldershot is closer but I was hoping that someone would have a copy to hand.

    The National Archive has swallowed my money for the medal rolls but the link crashed and the promised email hasn't arrived. I bet getting anything out of them will be like pulling teeth!

  6. Thanks, Oldbaldy! That looks like him.

    How did you do that?

    The National Archives still haven't sent me the link to the .pdfs despite my complaint! It's only a couple of quid but it's the feeling I have of being fleeced by a government agency!

    Because I research my own family history quite a bit I pay a subscription to Ancestry. Medal Cards are available on there.
    & your right his actual service record must have been one of those destoyed in the Blitz.
