HMT Tagus Oct 1917 British West Indies Regiment (Jamaica)

Remembering the 11th Battalion (9th Jamaica War Contingent - 18 officers and 985 men) of the British West Indies Regiment who sailed from Jamaica on 2 October 1917, stopping in Liverpool 29 October 1917, where both Pte 15720 William Clarke and Pte 15813 Edwin Ebenezer Facey were buried at Anfield. Four others also died during the voyage and are commemorated on the Hollybrook Memorial. There were also men from The Bahamas and they arrived in Le Havre, France on 2 November 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.
