There were 2 Lt. Bartletts in the 11th.I was wondering if anyone could confirm which of these was with A Sqd?I have come across a couple of letters regarding the death of one of the Tprs under Lt. Bartlett(s) command but can't decipher the intials.There was a Lt.E.W Bartlett and a Lt.J.S.Bartlett.Grateful for any assistance.(Dont mean to be lazy but have tried - Rammonds history, nor archives search results are a help and AWM isnt loading)

If your man was killed in action on or around 7th November 1917, then the following extract from Volume 7 - Sinai and Palestine - 7th November 1917 may answer your question:
"........... The disaster was so complete that relief was purposeless, but Lieutenant J.S. Bartlett, a fellow troop leader of Brierty's, advanced boldly from the left with a Hotchkiss (machine gun - dd) and nine riflemen, got into a good position, and shot down a number of Turks who were moving from their trenches towards Brierty's party. Twenty Turks and one German officer were afterwards found dead there in a heap. Of Bartlett's party of ten, four were killed and three wounded."
