Pte. James William Zimmer
British Army London Regiment 1/7th Btn.
from:30 Holloway Road, London
My great grandfather James William Zimmer was with the 7th London Regiment, he ended up in the Labour Corps in 1919, disabled with bronchitis which I have read can be brought on by mustard gas. He was also attached to the 4th battalion Essex Regiment. I am trying to find more information on him.
