Captain Robert Mansergh MC and Merchiston Castle men in the Manchester Regiment – A Biography

Thanks to Sue Nelson, David Findley and a number of helpful contributors we’ve created a Biography of Robert Mansergh.  He had just celebrated his 18th Birthday when Robert (Bob) was Commissioned in the 2nd City Battalion of the Manchester Regiment and became Arthur Bell’s Officer in Command of III Platoon.  Bob had joined a group of masters and old boys from Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh.  His Biography covers these valiant men and their service in the Great War.

Any Comments are thoroughly welcome.  Readers should enjoy the photos and personal anecdotes.
