Bristol & The War – Apr 17, 1915 & Nov 1, 1915

Officers of 3/4 Batt Gloucester Regt from Nov. 1, 1915 issue of Bristol & The War

Officers of the 3/4th Battalion Gloucester Regiment from the Nov. 1st 1915 issue of Bristol & The War

It’s been quite some time since I posted a digitized copy of Bristol & The War and so I’ve uploaded two complete issues to Flickr: Vol. I No. 14 April 17th 1915 and Vol. II No. 21 Nov 1st 1915.

The April issue includes articles on The Black Watch, the Bristol Territorials and the Bristol Heavy Battery. The November issue, 20 pages in length, includes articles on the Bristol Cadet Corps., 3/4th and 3/6th Battalions Gloucester Regiment, Bristol Volunteer Regiment and a long Roll of Honour. Surprisingly the April issue contains no mention of individual soldiers however the Nov. 1st issue more than makes up for this. I’ve listed the soldier’s names below, broken out by article, in the hopes that researchers will find these men when querying the search engines.
