2015 is going to be a busy year. I've been busy adding information on several newly identified servicemen with Cottingham connections onto my database but the priority for January is adding to and amending information on servicemen already uploaded onto the website. In particular a lot of new information on the military career of William Coles has recently been published on findmypast - my thanks to Amanda Taylor for notifying me.
Pual Goult of Corby Borough Council points out that the Core Theatre based in the Core, Corby is screening the film of the Battle of Coronel and Falklands mentioned in an earlier blog. It will be shown on Friday 16th January at 7:00 pm as part of the Centenary commemorations. At least two local seamen died at Coronel.
