Men who passed through

If you ever visit the National Archives and work your way through the names of men listed in medal registers for the Durham Light Infantry, you will quickly notice that many of them passed through various battalions at different times of the war. Among them, some men served in 11 DLI on more than one occasion for short periods. One such example has just been added to the Roll of Honour under Letter ‘P’. Private 11759 John William Palmer died in Lichfield Military Hospital in 1920, accredited at the time as 1st DLI, but had spent various periods with 10 DLI, 8 DLI (T), 3 DLI and 11 DLI as well as attached to Depot.
