Private; Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby Regiment)
No Service Records or Medal Index Card has been found for a likely candidate. A possibility is that he did not serve overseas and was a Derby Scheme man who never left the farm or was not fit for war service.
The presumption is that the listed John Bowmer on the Fritchley Roll (and on the original 1920 Roll for Crich) is John Bowmer son of Thomas and Hannah Bowmer, farmers of Fritchley. His name was omitted from the 2018 Roll for Crich as at the time of its preparation nothing could be found for this person. His name and regiment on the Fritchley Roll was not discovered until much later.
