HMT Magdalena Mar 1917 British West Indies Regiment

HMT Magdalena Mar 1917 British West Indies Regiment

Remembering a contingent of the 5th Battalion which sailed from Guyana, Trinidad (304 men of 3rd Trinidad Contingent) / Barbados on HMT Magdalena on 28/30 March 1917. There were also men from Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and they arrived in Alexandria, Egypt on 30 April 1917. All of the men were volunteers. For those who died extra information has been collected from the Soldiers' Effects records, but for lots of these men there are only medal records because they managed to survive; (the medal rolls are however split by island and show their original battalion). So they sailed from home, served in the war and then sailed home again, with the regiment not invited to the Peace (Victory) Parade held in London July 1919 // incomplete.
