7 Coy, Army Service Corps

7 Coy, Army Service Corps

The caption on this board reads, “No 7 Coy, ASC. Winners, Howes Cup, Garrison League. Potchefstroom 1910-1911” The dates are important because the men are named on the photo and most of them appear in the 1911 Census and can be easily identified. This is important because it means I can then add these faces to the records on the British Army Ancestors website. At the time of writing, I have expanded most of their forenames and ranks and added regimental numbers. The men are:

Standing :
T/25735 Dvr Joseph Kynaston, T/27553 Dvr Leonard Higham, T/25215 Tptr William Joseph Egan, S/17042 Sgt James Sanderson, SR/03393 Dvr Victor C Birrell, Cpl Edwin Deboo, E Hogg, S/20888 L-Cpl William Thomas Bedford

SSM Francis W Hawkes, Lt Herbert Basil Haddon-Smith, Major Cecil Hallowes Lewis, Dvr Patrick Glynn, Captain Charles Henry Napier Nunn, T/15010 CSM Henry Smith Hooper

On the ground:
R Parker, Dvr John Rogers

In an impressive season, the team from 7 Coy, Army Service Corps played 24 matches, won 22 and lost two. They scored 64 goals and conceded four. Many of these men would go on to serve their King and Country during the First World War.
