Edward Parker - 9th DLI - Blaydon (Wounded)

  • Description

    This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 25th of May 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images or have any stories or information to add please comment below. Copies of this photograph may be ordered from us, for more information see: http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt" >www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt Please make a note of the image reference number above to help speed up your order.

    I believe this is a photo of my Great Uncle who joined the DLI 1/9th Battalion in 1914 with Service No 1409, and later transferred to the Dorsetshire Regiment with Service No 202595 before being killed in action on 31/03/1918 and being buried in fRocquiqny-Equancort Road Cemetery, Manacourt, France. He is commemorated on the Blaydon War Memorial.
