3rd Bn Prisoners of War

This list is taken from a type-written seven page list in the museum’s archives entitled “Prisoner’s of War in Germany – QOR Members, 3rd Battalion”. The first page is missing. Despite the title, this seems more of a 3rd Bn list than a list of QOR members in the 3rd Battalion as a number had no militia experience when they enlisted or they served with other regiments.

There is no indication as to when the list was created although it may have been during the war as it includes barrack, lager and prisoner numbers which may have been used for sending mail and parcels. Some names have been written in as additions. Note also that It only includes enlisted men.

One thought on “3rd Bn Prisoners of War”

  1. This is just a partial list of 3rd Bn POW’s. Comins svc no. 10013 was taken POW at St Julien with my Grandfather Thos. Cully svc no. 10014. They stood side by side at that battle. They were flanked. Cully was seriously wounded and picked up for dead days later. He followed a different path than his pal Comins. Cully’s wounds were debilitating enough that he was repatriated through Switzerland in 1917. Geo Saunders svc no. 9721 SON, visited the QOR off’s Mess on many occasions as a guest of Gen Pitts.
