The "Ossett Observer", Thursday the 24th December 1914
On Thursday, 24th December 1914 the "Ossett Observer" carried the following headline and report of the Ossett and Horbury men who were serving King and Country at that time. The article also includes some men from Middlestown, Netherton and Crigglestone and these listings are included at the end of the following transcription.
The army service records of some 70% of British men who served in WW1 were destroyed by the Luftwaffe when they bombed London in September 1940. Whilst WW1 medal rolls and medal index cards have largely survived they often do not include sufficient detail required to identify soldiers with any certainty.
Consequently, for many people, the "Ossett Observer" article may include the only easily identifiable record of WW1 service which has survived. For this reason, and because it may assist family historians to reconcile the soldiers with their WW1 medal cards the article has been reproduced below.
Great Britain had declared War against Germany on the 4th August 1914 and within four months all of these local men had volunteered to serve. Conscription was not brought in until January 1916. The first section of the following listings record those men who served as Officers including several serving in the local Regiment, The King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (K.O.Y.L.I.). Some of these men would be serving overseas in December 1914.
The second section lists Ossett men serving in Regiments other than 4th battalion K.O.Y.L.I., and the third section lists Ossett men serving in 4th Battalion K.O.Y.L.I. by December 1914. These were men who were reservists and/or men serving in the Territorial Regiment before War was declared. The 4th battalion later became known as the 1st/4th Battalion K.O.Y.L.I. This was the first-line 4th battalion KOYLI and they embarked for France on 12th April 1915.
The third section, headed K.O.Y.L.I. (Reserve) Battalion, were men who volunteered after the declaration of war and who were attached to this Reserve battalion which was formed in October 1914. It became known as 2/4 Battalion K.O.Y.L.I .i.e. the 2nd line Battalion with the remit to train and deploy recruits as replacements to 1/4 battalion when the need arose. The Battalion did not embark for France until 15th January 1917 although many of the men on this listing would have become replacement soldiers for 1st/4th Battalion and other K.O.Y.L.I. battalions much earlier than this.
The "Ossett Observer" article also includes a list of names of men who were employees of the Old Roundwood Colliery. This is not reproduced here due to the poor quality of the copy and also because, as the article reports, many will be found also in the general list which we give and probably a number will reside outside the district to which the list applies.
The "Observer" article also included the names of men from Horbury, Middlestown, Overton, Netherton and Crigglestone and theses names are also included below.
The 100 year-old "Ossett Observer" article is a poor copy and whilst every care has been taken to reproduce the content as accurately as possible the reader is recommended to confirm the information, (especially the men’s service numbers) against the microfiched copy which is available in the Ossett Library.

OUR ROLL OF HONOUR
LIST OF OSSETT AND HORBURY MEN
WHO ARE SERVING THEIR COUNTRY
We have endeavoured to compile a list of Ossett and Horbury men who are serving their country, in the Army and Navy, in the present time of crisis. The result must necessarily be imperfect. Official records are not readily available, and our information comes from a wide variety of official and unofficial sources. We are conscious and regret , the following list is incomplete, despite the care which we have taken to ensure that the name of no local man, made worthy of the commemoration by patriotism, should be omitted.
Relatives and friends of soldiers and sailors whose names may have been omitted from these lists are invited to send particulars to the "Observer" with a view to the publication of a supplementary list at a later date.
