HMT Verdala Sept 1915 British West Indies Regiment

Remembering the first draft (approx 900) of the 1st Contingent who sailed from Trindad/Guyana/Barbados on HMT Verdala on 18/19/20 September 1915 including men from Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, Grenada, St. Vincent, and Trinidad. 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, fought in the war and sailed home again. Please add family histories if you can and spread the word to others so that they can be commemorated properly. ==== BWIR service numbers to 1014.
