East Lancashire Regiment draft to 30 IBD Etaples and on to 17th and 20th Battalions King's (Liverpool Regiment) - June 1917.

This community describes a small draft of East Lancashire Regiment soldiers who conscripted in March 1917 and "graduated" into the East Lancashire Regiment but did not serve overseas with that unit. The 15 recruits, all of similar background (East Lancashire Regimental numbers, age and geography) appear on a alpha-numeric list created at 30 IBD, Etaples in June 1917 where they received new numbers. Those with surnames A-L (became 50224-50258) and went to 17th Battalion King's (Liverpool Regiment) and those with surnames M-Z (became 50259-50293) and went to 20th Battalion King's (Liverpool Regiment) .NOTES: 1. Harry Faulkner’s Service Record is the only related record that survived the Blitz. His record gives us an important, albeit indirect, insight into the other's service and for that reason he is included in this Community.
