Frev,

Thanks again mate.

As to Evac to hosp Bristol via Gibraltar around Nov 1915, I have a number shown from the 9 LHR, such as ;

CUNNINGHAM   Norman Douglas   538   Pte   9 LHR   A Sqn Tos A Sqn 8-15 evac to hosp Gibraltar (hernia) 9-15 to (2 southern GH) hosp Bristol UK 10-15 (G) to AIF depots UK 6-16 to 1 MG Co 1 MG Bn 4-18 WIA 27-9-18 minor reported in camp near Longpre F&B rtn L/Cpl AIF depots UK 1-19 to ER 2/Cpl 3-19 to ER Cpl 9-19 married Doris Price at Hampstead UK 14-10-19
 or

KADOW   Herbert Clifford Henry   952   Pte   9 LHR   5R Tos A Sqn C Troop? 9-15 reported help bury Sgt Gill & Pte Knibbs KIA at Hill 60 8-15? evac to (Gen) hosp Gibraltar (typoid) 10-15 to (Beaufort War) hosp Bristol UK (dysentry) 11-15 (G) RTA MU arthritis R/ankle disch 10-7-16 relist 7R/43Bn (3078) to 11 trg Bn Larkhill UK 8-17 to 10 Trg Bn Sutton UK 11-17 tos CCo 2-18 F&B killed as stretcher bearer during an attack on Scutari Trench near Clery sur Somme reported shot dead by sniper or MG fire in fighting during advance towards Allaines near Mont St Quentin buried Peronne Communal Cemetery Extension France

So BROKENSHIRE was possibly on that same ships but what was not shown is why he was evac to hosp? possibly any number of medical reasons?

Thanks for the brothers, nice one.

Another for you from Bill's list

SINCLAIR   John Charles   767   Pte   9 LHR   3R Tos B Sqn? 7-15 to L/Cpl 10-15 evac to Tigne hosp Malta (enteric) 11-15 (G) rtn 3-16 to 3 LHTR 3-16 to Gnr 59Bty/15 FAB 4-16 WIA 5-8-16 face, chest & L/arm shrapnel at Fleurbaix - Fromelles F&B to HQ AIF depots UK 10-16 to APayC London att RTU Tidworth UK 1-17 to ER Cpl 9-17 to ER 2/Cpl 7-18 to ER Sgt 3-19 to ER S/Sgt 9-19 married in UK?

Shown RTA with wife, but again no details?

Cheers

Steve – Brokenshire was definitely on the same ship as Kadow as far as his evacuation from Gibraltar to Bristol:

Last page of Brokenshire’s Service record (p.24):
23/11/15 Transferred to “Minneapolis” for England ex G.H. [General Hospital] Gibraltar – Enteric
28/11/15 Admitted Beaufort War Hospital, Fishponds, Bristol – Sick

Page 78 of Kadow’s Service record:
23/11/15 Transferred to “Minneapolis” for England ex G.H. Gibraltar – Dysentery
28/11/15 Admitted Beaufort War Hospital, Fishponds, Bristol – Sick

[Kadow had been admitted to Gibraltar hospital 7/11/15, ex HS Somali – whether Brokenshire had come from Gallipoli at the same time, I guess we’ll never know unless a diary turns up!]

Cunningham was a month earlier...


I do already have J.C. SINCLAIR ta - he married Gladys Ellen EVANS in the Oct-Dec Qtr of 1919 at Wandsworth.

Cheers, Frev

Stanley SAMPSON is new to the database, thanks Steve.

He married Sarah WAKEFIELD in the Apr-Jun Qtr of 1916 at Woolwich, England - they returned to Aus together on the Bremen 4/6/1919.

Stanley lost his only brother John Henry Hitchens SAMPSON (Cpl 3265, 27th Bn) in the war - he DOW 5/5/1917 France.


The list of those returning on the Osterley 'accompanied by wife' in RUSSELL's service record is very much appreciated thanks Steve - some I didn't have yet...

Wishing you a safe and happy New Year, Frev

Frev,

You should have this man, but I was wondering how he married her?

He is shown still in either hosp or 3 LHTR in Egypt at the date of marrage?

He must have meet her when at the AB Weymouth in early 1916 before returning to Egypt

Did he do it by proxy?

Any ideas

Also was this bloke related to John?

GORRINGE   James Thomas   52822   Pte   2 GSR Vic   to CTD 7-18 tos CSqn/9 LHR 11-18 att 2 LH Sig Sqn 12-18 rtn 1-19 related John 9 LHR

Hi Steve – good pick-up!

I did actually have the barest of details for him in the database, but hadn’t looked into it any further….
Turns out the date of the marriage has been written incorrectly on the copy of the Marriage Certificate in his file.  It was no doubt transcribed in 1919, and that’s what the Clerk has inadvertently written down.
The marriage actually took place on the 6/3/1916
And yes, James Thomas GORRINGE was J.J.W.R.’s brother

More details for you below:

BURGLAR’S STOCK-IN-TRADE – A LOCAL FIND
A find that would form an interesting addition to a criminal museum was made by Master Jack Gorringe, whilst eating his lunch at his work over the river on Thursday last.  Master Gorringe is employed on a fencing job, erecting a fence around a special lease just across the bridge for Messrs Dargin and Malcolm, and whilst enjoying his bread and meat at a spot about 100 yards above the old brick kiln his attention was attracted by the appearance of a purse upon the ground.
A purse is always connected with the idea of wealth, therefore the finder decided to investigate, lest he throw a chance away.  He was not expecting the result which his seeking revealed however, ……

ANOTHER VOLUNTEER
Send off to Mr Jack Gorringe
A large number of townspeople put in an appearance at the Variety Hall on Friday evening to bid farewell to Mr Jack Gorringe, who has been accepted for service with the Expeditionary Force.
Mr Gorringe, who is a native of Balranald, was a member of the local Volunteer Fire Brigade, and is a very popular young fellow.
The send-off took the form of a dance and supper.
During intervals in the dancing songs were rendered by Miss Cummins, Miss Williams and Mr Jack Gorringe, and were highly appreciated.
At the supper interval Dr. G.W. Foster and Mr A.A. Williams spoke of the fine qualities possessed by Mr Gorringe, and eulogised his patriotism in offering to fight for the flag.  They wished him God-speed and a safe return.
On behalf of the local Fire Brigade, Lieut J. Loveluck presented Mr Gorringe with a set of sleeve links as a token of the appreciation of his colleagues in the Brigade.
After supper, dancing was resumed till an early hour in the morning.
On Sunday night Mr Gorringe left for Swan Hill, en route for Melbourne, amid many expressions of good will and wishes for a safe and speedy return, to which we add our hearty concurrence.

Riverina Recorder (Balranald, NSW), Wed 8 Sept 1915 (p.4):
NEWS FROM OUR BOYS
Trooper Jack Gorringe, in the 9th Light Horse, writing from the front to a lady friend in Balranald under date 28th June, says: – We are in the fighting line now, right in the thick of it, and in the trenches.  We live in the side of high hills in dugouts, dug in the side of these hills, and we are just like rabbits.  Whenever we hear a shell coming we “duck” for our lives.  It is a case of “Bob down your spotted.”  I would like to tell you more of what we are doing and where we are, but cannot do so, as this letter would not pass the censor.  Do you know Mr Chanter?  He is our Lieutenant; not too bad a chap; he is very good to us.  I would like to be with you singing in the choir again, and having a good old time at your concerts.
Writing again under date 14th July, from Malta Hospital, he says: – I had the bad luck to get wounded, but not badly, and will soon be out of the hospital again.  When I am better I am going to England for a rest, then I am going back to Turkey, that is if I cannot get to France to have a scrap at the Germans, which I would love to do, and to see which I like the best – the Turks or the Germans.  I had a good run with the Turks, 12 weeks before I got hit, so I have done my bit, but I would like to get to the other side of the fun.  What do you think of the old would be singer and jam and butter roller now.  I got a corporalship, so I am not doing too bad, and my next rise will be to Sergeant, if I don’t get knocked out before I get the chance to gain it.  I must ring off now, and wishing you all a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year, I remain, your truly, Corporal Jack Gorringe, No.417.

Towards the latter end of the innings, Jack Gorringe was brought on to end the match and he did this in no uncertain manner.  The last three wickets to fall was secured by Jack, and he earned the plaudits of his club mates for his achievement.  Six wickets for 34 runs is almost, if not the best for this year.  Jack bowled six and a half overs for his good average.

FOUR – ALL OUT
UNOFFICIAL HISTORY
We have been handed the following account of a Cricket “Test” Match, Australia v. England which appeared in a London paper recently.
It was a “Test” match amongst the English and Australian soldiers in Palestine, and we might also mention in passing the unique fact that “Digger” Jack Gorringe witnessed this memorable “Test.”
England All Out 4
“Next week-end, at Sydney, England and Australia will be at grips for the cricket “Ashes.”  And we shall know all about it.
“But how many people have heard of the unofficial “Test” match that took place in the autumn of 1917, between “England” and “Australia” under the shadow of Mount Sinai?
“It is a war epic, and as such should not be permitted to pass into oblivion.
“It came about in the following way.  Some squadrons of English Yeomanry were resting on the coast of the Mediterranean, while simultaneously the Australian troops were also indulging a few miles away.  Both spent a considerable time at cricket, and one of the English officers suggested a challenge to the commander of the Australian troops, which was accepted.  ………………………………

Golf News, Etc.
Thanks must be made here to Jack Gorringe for his very thoughtful act in scraping all the greens for us last Sunday as after the very heavy rain the greens were just anyway, perhaps had they been scraped more heavily and allowed to dry, the results of the day may have been very different for many, but nevertheless this thoughtful act by Jack was a very bright sign that we have in our club, those who will help us in a quiet way, and trying to make the club the real success we would all have it.

Riverina Recorder (Balranald, NSW), Sat 4 Nov 1933 (p.3):
CRICKET NEWS
The Diggers’ Captain, Jack Gorringe, is a great fighter for his side.  Jack can still hit hard.  No batsman is safe if playing a cross bat when this Digger is bowling.

The Independent (Deniliquin, NSW), Fri 15 Jun 1934 (p.2):
SEVERED A TOE
Mr Ralph Gorringe, son of Mr J.J. Gorringe, of Balranald, while working with his father on “Glen Dee” Station met with a painful mishap.  He was sinking a post hole with a crowbar, which he accidentally drove through his boot, severing one toe from the left foot.  His father conveyed him to hospital and he received immediate medical attention.  An operation was performed and one of the toes saved by stitching.  One toe was completely cut off.  Mr Gorringe is now an inmate of the Balranald Hospital.

Riverina Recorder (Balranald, NSW), Sat 7 Dec 1935 (p.2):
Pick Driven Through Foot
Mr Jack Gorringe, who was employed on the road work leading to the new weir at Red Bank, …..day, met with a painful mishap.  While using a pick he accidentally drove the implement through his foot, entering at the base of the toes.  He was fortunate not to strike any bones and the point of the pick just missed an artery.  After rendering first aid, Mr Gorringe was hurried to Balranald for medical attention.  It will be some weeks before Mr Gorringe will be able to resume work again.

Frev,

Many thanks mate nice one.

Lt Chanter is shown as Troop officer D Troop C Sqn which is known as Jack's Troop and Sqn when he embarked.

That's where the problems start with John Chanter

CHANTER   John Courtenay      2/Lt   9 LHR   C Sqn D Troop 10-14 emb C Sqn C Troop in war dairy 5-15 shown C Sqn C Troop (emb lists and in Army lists dated 7-15) shown C Sqn B Troop possibly WIA 2-7-15 minor (he stated was wounded in the face by shrapnel) at Walkers Ridge evac to (1 AGH) hosp Egypt (influ) 7-15 rtn 8-15 prom T/Capt 2ic C Sqn (from callary) 11-15 (G)

He is shown embarked with C Troop but shows up in B Troop by the time he was evac to hosp (with influenza in his file), if wounded in the face by shrapnel then it must have been a minor wound?

Always good to double check these men, and then cross check them with other names.

Cheers
