HERBERT

Journal by pollywolly

MY GREAT UNCLE JOHN CHARLES HERBERT WAS KILLED ON JULY 14TH 1916 AT THE BATTLE OF THE SOMME AND IS COMMEMORATED AT THIEPVAL FRANCE. DOES ANYONE HAVE A PHOTO OF HIM? I HAVE PHOTOS OF ALL HIS BROTHERS AND SISTER BUT I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE.

did he join up in Australia or New Zealand?
I'm asking because I have all the records of 'A' John Charles Herbert Service number1364 born in Benalla lived in Rutherglen Victoria.
If it is New Zealand contact the Auckland War Memorial Museum

Hi Pollywolly,
By adding this extra info I hope that someone will recognise John and hopefully be able to provide you with a photo

John Charles HERBERT served as Private 11642 with the 7th Battalion Leicestershire Regiment. His parents were John & Elizabeth Annie Herbert of 4 Marsden Terrace, Lutterworth, Leicestershire
He died aged 21 (born about 1895) and is commemorated at Pier and Face 2 C and 3 A at Thiepval Memorial, Somme, France

Add a note and flowers for your great uncle here:
John Charles Herbert
