  1. What I think/hope is a complete list of British losses in Crete between 1897 and 1909, and commemorated on the island, is attached. Alternatively, it can be found here: http://mickmctiernan.com/history/british-military-deaths-crete-1897-to-1909/ I think I've tracked them all down, but if anyone has any to add please let me know, I'm more than happy to update the list. I'm also happy to supply a spreadsheet with this, and a bit more, info on request. Mick McT British Military Deaths in Crete 1897 to 1909.docx
  2. ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="480px" height="750px">"> Can anyone help me identify the badge on the right arm of the seated soldier please? There's no date on the photograph, but the soldier standing on the right is known to have been in 5/West Riding Regiment from 1914 until 1916, and then in 4/West Riding Regiment from his re-enlistment in 1917 until his demob. in 1919.

  3. Dear all, I'm in the process of doing a Masters degree with a dissertation looking at the British Military involvement in Crete from 1896 to 1913. I'm concentrating on the earlier part of the involvement, in particular on the role played, on the Army side, by: 1/Seaforths 4 Mountain Battery RA 2/Royal Welsh Fusiliers 1/Border Regiment 1/Northumberland Fusiliers 1/HLI 2/Rifle Brigade 2/Dorsetshire 1/Lancs. Fusiliers I'm looking at all the 'usual suspects' for information, National Archives, National Maritime Museum, National Army Museum, regimental archives etc and I've been in contact with 'rusticalex' re his marvellous photographs. I appreciate that it may be a long shot, but does anyone on the forum have any photos, letters, journals etc. that they might be willing to share? I'm afraid all I can promise in return is an acknowledgement in the final dissertation! Many thanks Mick McT
