I am researching my Fathers WW1 service and the medals that were awarded (including the MM
and Bar) whilst serving with the 1st Bn E.Lancs Regt .

My research would indicate that the information I am looking for is most likely contained in this document:
"WO 95/3061 1 Battalion East Lancashire Regiment 1918 Mar. - 1919 May."

If there is anyone who has access to this document I would be most grateful if they could contact me.

I am doing this for a friend and she would be very interested. He is her great grandfather. She is trying to find name of his wife for some time., with no luck. I have copy of his will but it would appear she was deceased at his death, as his will was in trust for his two children, his son being my friends father.
Regards Dee

Hi Neil
I found quite a bit on Henry Woodcock on Ancestry. If you would like me to look for any information, please do you know his date of birth, if he married, what area he lived or was born in etc, and I will gladly look for you.

Alan Greveson kindly helped me with some information about my grandfather, Edward Richard Borthwick (RFA T 805970 Gnr). Since then I found a record of one of his woundings dated 25/6/1918. It states that he was transferred from the 64th Field Ambulance to No. 30 Ambulance Train. His regiment was the RFA, 122nd Brigade, C Battery 38th Division.
I have tried to find some information about where this might have taken place but without any luck. Perhaps someone on the forum with a knowledge of either the RFA or RAMC may be able to help.
Many thanks,
