Herring, John Frederick: Service no. 53119

Digitized Service Record

Source: Found during research for blog article about June 1917 sports day. 2nd place high jump after Laird. May have served 4th. M.G. Coy.


Sadly, though this man married in England, his wife, Elsie, died during her voyage to Canada. He would remarry in 1928 and one of his children from that union was named Elsie. Per Annette Fullford via Twitter @avidgenie.

Note that this soldier shows up in the 1915 April Nominal Roll under the reg. no. of 53499 or 53199. Difficult to read from the digital copy in my possession.
