Thank you Eggy,
I have had positive responses to the Facebook entry....for which I am extremely grateful..I am not on Facebook...it was kindly put on by some friends.
However despite all theses efforts this soldier remains a man of mystery.
Records show that a James Archbold joined the 13th Battalion of the Northumberland Fusiliers.51 day’s later he was discharged as being unsuitable.
on 1:7:16 24/395 ..Northumberland Fusiliers James Bonner was K.I.A at La Boisselle France.He has no known grave.
in October 1915 James Bonner ..Corporal..Northumberland Fusilers married Margaret Miller.
After he was killed his widow Margaret collected his effects.he is shown on the effects register as 24/395 Bonner.
i speculate that these are one and the same...newspaper articles in early August 1916 show that 395 Bonner had been killed.
james Bonner Archbold late of Bedlington has been killed.
unfortunately without further evidence to connect the two my speculation remains just that..speculation.
As said...any further information ...to link the two..would be appreciated.
thank you for responding.
