Soldiers of the Regiment

Private Cornelius Sullivan

Cornelius Sullivan enlisted into the King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment on 7th March 1906.  He was serving with the 2nd Battalion in 1908 and transferred to the 1st Battalion to served with them in around 1910 and 1911.  He must have transferred back to the 2nd Battalion as he was with them in India when the war broke out.  He returned to England with the rest of the battalion in December 1914 and arrived on the Western Front on 15th January 1915.  He was clearly wounded and hospitalised in Torbay.  He was discharged on 10th June 1915 due to wounds.
