The Old and the Bold


Fourth Reinforcement Draft Roll

An incomplete nominal roll of those men who formed the fourth reinforcement draft to be sent to the 25th Battalion Royal Fusiliers in East Africa.  The reinforcement draft, 384 strong, proceeded overseas aboard the R.M.S. “Corinthic” on 23rd July 1917 under the command of Lieutenant J. B. T. Low according to the embarkation return (1)..  As can be seen below it has been possible to positively identify about two-thirds of the draft at this time.


This nominal roll has been created from a number of sources, primarily the British War & Victory Medal Roll and surviving service records where available.  Wherever possible I have identified the man with the rank he held when he proceeded overseas but, due to the way the ranks were recorded on the medal roll, this isn’t always possible and could be a higher rank subsequently held.
