5363 Private W Ferguson, 3rd Border Regiment

Little is known about this man other than that he was an early arrival at Hickwells as a convalescent.  The first arrivals to the home came on 26th March 1915 and Private Ferguson’s entry in Nurse Oliver’s album is dated less than a month after that.  It reads:


5363 Pte W Ferguson

3rd Border Regt                                     M
Shoeburyness                                       Ay
Essex                                                   Sc

He shares this page in the album with entries from 19740 Private Joseph Leigh of the 3rd Border Regiment, W Wallace of the 1st Border Regiment and 50082 Driver James Gilbert of the Royal Field Artillery.

Nothing further is known about this man and I have been unable to find a medal index card for him.
