WILLIAM NORTH

 Royal engineers badge

Dates of birth and death unknown

He took employment at Notts. County Asylum (Saxondale) on an unknown date. He  is listed in the hospital’s annual report as a temporary attendant who had joined the forces by March 1917. His regiment was the Royal Engineers. There are twelve men named William North serving in the Royal Engineers who are listed on the Medal Rolls Index Cards; it is difficult to distinguish between them. However, he might be William T. North who served with the Kings Royal Rifles. There were a number of men working at the Asylum from the KRR who had completed their service with the colours.

William T. North entered France with the KRR on 20.12.14 then transferred to the Royal Engineers, followed by the London Regiment and back to the Royal Engineers.
