    Well...I knew that at least one reply would be on the theme: ' Peterboro - a great place to leave behind!' ....can't say I warmed to MDHU P much myself :)

    Notwithstanding I'm pretty sure that at least one Arrser may have an idea where the Co-op can find out a bit more about those they have commemorated for the best part of 90 years.

    Local Great War recruiters were either Herts,Beds & Bucks or Norfolks if I recall correct.

    My own village memorial does not give units - just names and in one post WWII case theatre (Malaya).

    Hmm, Google gave me this much - but I'm not a member of the site so no additional details:

    Bertie Ringham , possibly RASC

    and this gave died 1944 in Southampton, age 27.

    D-Day casevac?
