South Wales Borderers at Tsingtao 1914

South Wales Borderers at Tsingtao 1914

These men disembarked at Laoshan Bay on 23rd September 1914, and participated in the siege. They are the only British infantry regiment to have this battle honour. They embarked at Sha-tzu-kou Bay on 18 November, headed to Hong Kong, and arrived in Britain in January 1915. Their next destination was the Gallipoli landings on 25 April 1915. There is a very interesting book on the siege by John Dixon, "A Clash of Empires, the South Wales Borderers at Tsingtao, 1914" with many photos from the regimental museum, and a nominal roll of the men who were at the siege of Tsingtao. // I have researched all of these men, a large number of whom have been located on the 1911 Census. This has been researched since 2010, and my data appears on both my website, and I have granted permission for it to also appear on LOTFWW, hence this community.
