WWI participants

I think it about time I attempted a complete list of those Ivens (and associated spellings) involved in World War I. Because of the importance of this list, every effort has been made to acurately identify each person, but I recognise some transcription difficulties are apparent in the official records, especially in the transfers from one regiment to another, for example. Any errors are entirely mine.

Military records are notoriously incomplete, and it has been difficult to tie together the various remnants of source documents. Nevertheless, using precise AND inferred information within those references, together with information held within the Ivens database, it has been possible to pin down some of the individuals. But there are still many who remian unidentified.

So, if you have personal information on any individual I would be most pleased to hear it, however small the contribution.

In time, I would also like to find more accurate details of last resting places, so if you have specific information, again please let me know.

Finally, I am aware there are some who served with other regiments and services. My own great uncle, for example, HTC Ivens was with the 26th (later 2/15th) Punjab Regiment in India, and as a result, not listed in this initial attempt. 

N.B. The Record number at the end of each entry is a reference to my personal database of all UK Ivens.

Discharged – Wounded

The Silver War Badge was awarded to all of those military personnel who had served at home or overseas during the war, and who had been discharged from the army under King’s Regulations. Expiry of a normal term of engagement did not count and the most commonly seen reason for discharge and issue of the badge is KR is 392(xvi), meaning the soldier had been released on account of being permanently physically unfit.

It was possible to be awarded a badge if the man had not served overseas – and if his service record is now lost this may be the only remaining evidence of service for such a soldier.
