Private Shulman wrote two entries in the visitors’ books on 14 July 1916 and 24 February 1917. (The visitors’ book can be searched by date).

Private B Shulman was serving with Princess Louise’s (Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders) Regiment when transiting through Peterborough East Station on 14 July 1916.  He stated that he was based at Bacton, Norfolk where there was also an airfield during WW1.  On 24 February 1917 he wrote “Arrived in the Sailors and Soldiers Rest And we were given everything of the Best, Ever Grateful Pte B. Shulman 2/2/6 A & S H”

Research has so far failed to trace anything further.  We know that his battalion was originally formed at Paisley, Glasgow in September 1914, and that his entry in the British Jewry Book of Honour lists him as serving from 1914, so it is possible that he came from that area.

We have discovered that there were many Jewish families who took the name Shulman when coming to the UK from Russia in the 1800s.  Could this soldier’s family originally be from Russia?   Does this sound like someone in your family history?  If so, please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
