Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (The 2/4th Battalion)

Research and Resources around the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry during WWI

Corporal Herbert Edward (“Doctor”) Rockall

November 1916
“One night about this time a party of us, including Hunt and ‘Doctor’ Rockall, the medical corporal, who had accompanied me round the front posts, lost its way hopelessly in the dark.”

February 1917
“On our way to reach Fry we were both knocked down in the trench by a 4.2, which also wounded Corporal Rockall in the shoulder-blade.”

I’m 99% sure that it is Herbert E. Rockall mentioned above. As the document below gives details of him being wounded in action on 24th February 1917.
