The information contained in this web-site has been submitted in good faith by me and any errors or omissions are entirely of my doing. However, the sources of some of this information are sometimes in conflict with each other - one source will describe someone as a sergeant - another, a private and dates of death occasionally differ, as do names and ages, etc., so please bring any errors or perceived errors to my attention. I am just as susceptible to making mistakes as those who compiled these lists of names so many years ago.
