Re(2): Orbat /nominal role
IP: 86.183.158.237


Years ago when I set about creating a nominal roll of all those serving in the Lancashire Fusiliers on St George's Day 1968, no matter where they may be serving, I realised that it was going to be a hell of a job, since I did not have access to an official version.
This meant it all had to be done by hand and memory.

Dennis and I plodded on, getting a snippet or two from people here and there, very often incorrect/duplicated etc( We often had names given of Fusiiers who had been dead,discharged months and even years ago.

To make matters worse, someone then asked coud we spit the nominal role (such as we had it) into an Orbat dating 25th April 1968.

Here we go again we thought, huge arguments, this man had been in D Coy on that date, no he was not, he was on the QMs, no he was not, he had been discharges, etc,etc.

I decided that the effort we were putting in could not be justified and that if a man coud not find himself in either the nominal role, or the Bn Orbat, ten it was down to him to show me proof in writing as to why I should alter the roles.

As it is, I can see Cass on there and if he wishes to change either the nominal role or the orbat, I shall need paper proof.

Please do not flood me now with names unless your are proof positive that the man you wish to nominate was actually a serving LF on that day.

good luck.

Joe.
