Seeking Info About Bahamians Who Served in World War I

I received an email today from a gentleman who’s working with the Bahamas Branch of the British Legion to produce a tribute to Bahamians who served in World War I. The piece, which will commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the first World War, will be published as a special supplement in the Nassau Tribune this November.

Seeking Information About Bahamians Who Served During World War I

The Gallant Thirty – the first thirty Bahamians who volunteered to serve as part of the British West Indies Regiment during WWI.

If any of your Bahamian ancestors served during the first World War, or you’ve got photos or other information that might be of value to those producing this tribute, please contact me and I’ll put you in touch with them. Thanks!
