9th Battalion Roll of Honour

Postby kerchi » Tue Jan 15, 2013 9:40 am

The following list has been compiled using the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database and the publication Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19: The Border Regiment, which without, this listing would not have been possible.

As there are several thousand casualties for the entire regiment between these two sources, the number of casualties currently listed here for this battalion does not necessarily reflect the total number casualties due to the possibility of 1. missed names and 2. casualties that were associated with the Border Regiment. In other words officers and other ranks attached to the Battalion that have currently not been included.

Abbreviations and Notes
d. = died (see point 7 below)
d.o.w. = died of wounds
k. in a. or k.i.a. = killed in action
F & F = France and Flanders (inc. Italy)

1. Places where soldiers were born, enlisted and died (or buried) have been listed as it was originally published in Soldiers Died in the Great War (1921). As a result you may notice some variations in spelling due to a combination of factors including the changes made in the Governmental reform of 1965 and 1974. Some place names changed slightly and some county borders were moved, which either enlarged or reduced these counties in overall size. It might be possible that a town belonging to one county could now belong to another when the borders of those counties moved.
2. Much of the Military terminology has also been included here as it was published at the time, for example, the rank Sergeant is sometimes spelt Serjeant depending on the source material. Various ranks have also in many cases been abbreviated, for example, Private is abbreviated to Pte., Lance Corporal to L/Cpl. and Company Serjeant Major C.S.M.
3. Resident signifies where the soldier was living at the time he enlisted. The residences of the enlistees, in many cases, were different to places they enlisted in.
4. Att'd/trans. signifies a soldier was attached or transferred to another unit whilst serving in the Border Regiment.
5. Former unit signifies a soldier served in another unit prior to be transferred to the Border Regiment.
6. Awards are included if a soldier was awarded, for instance, the Distinguished Conduct Medal. This field is usually left blank although many casualties of the Border Regiment were awarded for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This terminology was usually used in awards such as D.C.M. citations. A full list of Border Regiment D.C.M. citations has been transcribed.
7. How died can be somewhat ambiguous, for instance d. simply signifies that the soldier died but does not elaborate any further. This could mean he died as a result of sickness such as dysentry, colitis, pneumonia or malaria etc., or possibly an accidental death.
8. Where died usually signifies the theatre of war such as France and Flanders, Macedonia, Gallipoli, Balkans and/or a country such as Egypt etc.
9. Grave ref. list a variety of different references. Most will provide alpha-numeric references and some will show, for instance, Panel 6, Rear of churchyard or in other cases will simply remain blank as no reference has been provided.
