I recently won at auction an album of photographs documenting the officers and men of the 2nd Battalion, Worcestershire Regiment in the early years of the 20th Century. This is one of the photos from that album and shows officers, mostly of the 2nd Battalion, probably in Ceylon in about 1906. I will have more to say about some of these men in due course.
Captain Leslie Claude Dorman, Lt Johnstone Percy Lipyeatt Stoney, Lt William Lister Newcombe, Capt Basil Kenrick Wing Bacon (KiA 13th Dec 1914), Lt Percy Roger Whalley, Capt D’Arcy Hemsworth Kay, Quarter Master James Ralston
Lt Col Walter Dermott Holland, Maj Hugh de Berdt-Hovell, Col Hickman, Col Payne, Lt Col Edward Charles Ingouville-Williams, Lt Col George White Lewis, Capt & Adjt Henry Arbuthnot Carr
Lt Thomas Kenyon Pardoe, Capt William Beresford Gibbs (KiA 3rd Sep 1916), Lt Bowcher Campbell Senhouse Clarke, Lt John Cunliffe Pickersgill-Cunliffe (KiA 4th Jun 1915), Lt Edward Wade Bateman, Capt Martin Raymond Carr (KiA 18th Sep 1914).
Thomas Pardoe was the owner of this album which includes photos taken in Ceylon, India and South Africa, as well as photos from his home in the UK. There is a lot of research potential here and the album will be of particular interest to anyone with Worcestershire Regiment leanings.
