Re: George William Pearce b 1894
Thank you all for your replies. I now have the full story, thanks to the Great War Forum. Karen you are right his number was changed. He was part of a relief force sent to relieve the HQ and A Company of the 1/4th Hants, who had been trapped inside Kut el Amara since 7th December 1915. The Relief Force suffered 23,000 casualties and George William Pearce was one of them.
