We need your help

To paraphase Lord Kitchener terribly – blog readers The Norfolk in World War One blog needs you!questionmark

 

We’ve been contacted by one of our readers, Stella, who is looking for a photo of a fallen family member:

My ancestor Nelson Dagless was in the 1st/5th battalion…I have been trying so hard to find a photo of him.
His roll of honour lies in Dereham, he was just 20 years old when he lost his life 

All I know of Nelson, is that he was born in Norfolk in 1897. He enlisted for WW1 service  in East Dereham and was a Private in the Norfolks 1st/5th battalion, number 240428.
He lost his life in Palestine on the 2nd November 1917. 
We know that so many of our readers have undertaken research in to the Norfolk Regiment that we thought it was worth passing on Stella’s request in the hope that someone will be able to help.
If you can please leave a comment here or email norfolkinworldwar1@gmail.com – many thanks in advance.
