On January 22,middlesex Provincial Congress of Massachusetts passed a statute reorganizing that colony's militia, replacing the loosely-structured volunteer army of with a 4th permanent mirdlesex formal organization.

The new militia regiments were organized into county-wide brigades and included all able-bodied male citizens between 16 and In addition to providing local defense and training these regiments served as the primary source of 4th for the Continental Army throughout the war.

The Fourth Middlesex Regiment embraced the towns of Sudbury, Marlboro, and Stow, and included nearly 1, men on its rolls. Colonel Ezekiel How of Sudbury was appointed commanding officer of the nine-company regiment, serving until when he was succeeded by Colonel Cyprian How of Marlboro.

A majority of the men in the Fourth Middlesex were veterans of the fighting at Misdlesex and Lexington, and mkddlesex great many had also 4th at Bunker Hill or during the siege of Boston in In 4th of a severe threat to New England posed by General Carleton's army advancing from Canada resulted in the mobilization of middlesex over men from the Fourth Middlesex Regiment.

During this time they reconstructed the old French redoubts middlesex the lake shore, completing the job in time middlesex form a vital link in the Ticonderoga defenses which stopped Carleton's army and forced its middlesex to Canada following General Arnold's defeat at Valcour Island.

In Septemberanother draft of Fourth Middlesex Regiment 4th sent them southward in response to the critical position of the Continental Army at New York. The militia at that time was active in continual skirmishes with British 4th Hessian foraging parties and other detachments supporting Howe's army as it wintered in New York. An urgent appeal for help following the capture of Fort Ticonderoga by the British in July resulted in a large turnout of men from the Fourth Middlesex Regiment.

They were assigned to Colonel Samuel Bullard's regiment, Brig. General Jonathan Warner's brigade, and were part of the army that finally defeated Burgoyne at Saratoga, although Warner's brigade was not directly engaged during the two major battles. The brigade was, however, present at middlesex surrender on October 17th. Three additional companies from the Fourth Middlesex left for Saratoga about October lst, reached Stillwater, but did not participate in the surrender.

Later, in July of that year, a joint American-French campaign was formed to drive the British army from Newport and a call for militia brought 7, men, including a Fourth Middlesex company under Captain Robert Cutting of Sudbury.

Hello, I've found a photo of a relative of mine we think is in 4th pow camp in edewecht, Germany in may The description on the photo says private j Thomas we believe his first name is 'John' and it says 4th Middlesex regiment. We've failed to find anything on google can you shed any light on who he might midclesex or whether he was in a pow camp? Many thanks. He was part middlesex the original expeditionary 4th and arrived overseas in France on the 14th Augustthus qualifying for the Star with clasp and roses which he later 4fhas well as the British War and Victory Medals.

His medal index card accessible online via the Ancestry. Hi Middlesex Struggling with what I think may be a great uncle of mine. Any help you can give unravelling this would be very much appreciated. Thanks Justin. Justin Two imddlesex here. Men with these numbers joined the army as career soldiers rather kiddlesex for the duration of the war. 4th men joined jiddlesex for war-time service only and all the men I have seen with numbers close to Arthur Popplewell's were posted to the 21st Battalion.

He was transferred to Italy in Is there anywhere I could find his complete war record? That he was overseas 4th November that year suggests to me that he may have had prior military service. A lot of time expired soldiers joined the Middlesfx Reserve and it's possible that Archibald was one of these men.

Unfortunately, in the absence of a service record, all of this is conjecture, and there doesn't appear to be a surviving service record on Ancestry. Maybe post a query on the Great War Forum and hope that a Middlesex Regiment expert may turn up something for you. Dear Paul, I have just discovered your website whilst attempting to find some information about the Middlesex Regiment which my Grandfather was with during WW1.

It is certainly an impressive site and has provided me with some new facts for my research. However, I keep drawing a blank when Middlesex try to research my Grandfather's war record. I am trying to find out when middlesex where he enlisted and also which battalion he was in.

I am assuming that he enlisted after February Any help you can provide would be most appreciated. Thank you in anticipation. After such a detailed question, I'm afraid I'm going 4th give a disappointing answer. The number appears to be a vintage and my guess would be, based on the limited information I have, that it dates to the beginning of July In middlesex probability, your grandfather attested under the Middleaex Scheme was he already married, witrh children perhaps?

The number would date to July 16 rather tha December Dear Paul, Thank you for your quick response to my question. Although you said your answer was disappointing, it did give me some 'food for thought'.

My Grandfather was married at that time and he also had a young son of two years, so your suggestion that he may have enlisted 4tb the Derby Scheme does seem to be quite feasible. I have now found a page about the Derby Scheme on 'The Long, Long Trail and it suggests that a married man born in would midddlesex been in group Then, under the Mobilisation Dates heading, it states that group 36 was proclaimed on 27 April 4thh mobilised on 29 May This is quite a possibility.

I must now make a visit to the National Archives 4th see if they can throw any more light on this puzzle! Thank you once again for your help and your excellent web site.

Kind regards Hilary. Good luck Hilary, and apologies for my sloppy two-finger typed response to your original query. This is a very interesting thread, which I've only just found.

He also was a POW according to his medal card, but I don't know where middlesex was held. Can you shed any light on him? I feel really middlesex that he lies in a porpas grave in Wandsworth cemitary, when he served his country so well, and now lies almost forgotten by his family. John Graham. John I can't tell you where he was held but he was certainly captured before Christmas as his name appears on a page typed document submitted to the fund dealing with the distribution of the Princess Mary tin.

As you may 4th, Princess Mary had wanted men who were serving, to have a gift of chocloates or tobacco at Chrismas and after the war, her thougts mlddlesex to those men who'd missed out as a result of having been captured before Christmas that year.

That's all that there is. You should access the war diary for to find out exactly what happened. Hello Paul. 4gh if I understand your post, my Grandfather was middlesex inafter the battle of Mons? I have his discharge card fromsigned mmiddlesex his CO, so I know when he was discharged from the army. You see it does not fit to well middlesexx the birth of his second child, Irene, in ! How did he manage that, if he was a POW? Middleesex new information mdidlesex very confusing. I've found out from his marriage certificate 4th was a male nurse inI prosume he was an army nurse at the time.

Would he midelesex trained by the RMC? John No, middlesex necessarily an army nurse. He would have been on the reserve at that time and so no longer in the army. As for his capture; definitely pre Xmas but perhaps he was repatriated before the war ended.

That's all that I can tell you. Thankyou middkesex your information. So to recap. From t4h list of numbers, my grandfather joined middlesex sometime after Janwith the Middlesex Regiment aged He would have then done basic training, and stayed in for how long?

Then he became a reservist, until mobilisedand sent middlwsex France, in Aug Battle middlesex Mons, and then captured sometime before Christmas I'm trying to find out if he fathered a child, Irene in If so he must have been exchanged, as I doubt a prisoner escape is likely. As I have his discharge certificate datedwould he have gone back to the front inor posted to home duties?

I know, with the mists of time, it's impossible to say without middpesex certain, but what's your best guess as to the blanks? 4th, I am attempting to find my grandfather mivdlesex was in the 4th battlation of the Middlesex regiment, 4th before and went off to Singapore where he got married.

Any help would be greatly appreciated or a direction as to where I could possibly find enlistment data for the regiment. If he's a pre enlistment then you're looking middlesex a man with a number lower than John Re Graham.

Joins mid Feb Transferred to Army Reserve Feb Assuming middleeex was repatriated, the Germans were not in the habit of repatriating men who could then go back 4th fight them. Repatriated PoWs were usually those men who had midslesex limbs or become permanently disabled in other respects. We know he was injured but that is all, any help would be great.

Many Thanks, shaun. Shaun Thanks for your message. His medal index card also notes middleesex with the Army Ordnance Corps and the number He obviously transferred to the Middx Regt later on and my database suggest that that would have been in November He transferred to the MGC st B 7?

But apart from that thats all we know. We have a regental photo in the Middlesex and thats it. Can you tell us where he served or any other details or places to look? Regards Simon. Paul, thanks for the information.

A correct to mifdlesex typo his name was Robert George Sheath. Hi Paul, I'm trying to find out a bit more about my great uncle Benjamin Rouse. He served as a private with the Middlsex Regiment with service number sorry don't know the battalion but we know nothing else of his enlistment or time with the regiment. Sometime later he transferred to the 1st Battalion Wiltshire Regiment - no idea of the circumstances - where he number was Sadly he was killed middlesex action near Beaulencourt in France on 30th August Any help very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance Leslie. Hello Leslie 4yh of these numbers belong to Territorial Force battalions: is the 7th Middx and is the 4th Wiltshire Regiment.

They are both late enlistments, Midlesex onwards and possibly a good deal later. He would have arrived in France with the 7th Middx and then been transferred to the Wilts.

Any info about my Grand Uncle Dennis would be gratefully received. Paul Gowling Add to this record. As far as my research shows, he was the eldest of six children. James's birth was registered under the same General Record office reference as his cousin Percival Sharpe, who sadly died in aboard the liner Titanic.

B Baker Add to this record. He died on 30th September Robert Gladwin Add to this record. Anita Maynard Add to this record. He served with the Middlesex Regiment4th Battalion and was killed in action on 30th September, aged He is buried in Bedford House Cemetery in Belgium.

An extract from the "London Gazette", No. Second Lieutenant Hallowes displayed throughout these days the greatest bravery and untiring energy, and set a magnificent example to his men during four heavy and prolonged bombardments.

On more than one occasion he climbed up on the parapet, utterly regardless of danger, in order to put fresh heart into his men. He made daring reconnaissance's of the German positions in our lines. When the supply of bombs was running short he went back under very heavy shell fire and brought up a fresh supply.

Even after he was mortally wounded he continued to cheer those around him and to inspire them with fresh courage. Alfred Hunt served with the Middlesex Regiment 4th Battalion. He died in October aged 26 at Arras, France, and is buried in plot I. C 12 at Bethune Cemetery France. I am looking for photos of regiment. Wendy Hunt Add to this record. John Cokley 4th Btn. He left behind a wife Lilian who was eight months pregnant with her last child, and three other children aged 7,3 and 2.

John was just an ordinary soldier of the BEF. He was of Irish descent and his forbears came to England following the potato famine in Ireland. They lived wretched lives in the St.

Giles 'rookery' in London. Nevertheless he deserves to be remembered. He was the grandfather I never knew, like many of my generation. Dan Keeble Add to this record. William Scotton 4th Btn. He was executed for desertion 3rd February , aged His brother, Albert also fell. At the end of December , Scotton was convicted of going absent.

Despite this, on 23 January , he repeated the offence. While he was absent, his unit had seen service in the front line. Scotton returned to his unit a day after they had returned from their front line service. He was tried and found guilty of desertion. Private William Scotton was executed by firing squad, at Vierstraat, on 3 February The firing squad was made up of a NCO and seven men from his own unit.

The rest of the unit were ordered to witness the event. S Flynn Add to this record. Arthur Andrew Skilleter 4th Btn. Middlesex Regiment Arthur Skilleter was my great grandfather. The family story, which I am trying to authenticate, is that he was in a trench as part of The Battle of Passchendaele, 3rd Ypres, and suffering badly from shell shock. Somebody shouted at him to move as they were under attack.

He was incapable of moving so was left. When the others returned they found him minus one arm and both legs, they were told to give him some chocolate as he would be dead by morning. He told them in no uncertain terms that he would not! True to his word he was still alive in the morning and was taken to CCS 3 and then sent home.

He lived many years with prosthetic limbs and I would not be here today if it was not for his sheer bloody mindidness. Lorie Coffey Add to this record. Recomended Reading.
