Private William Thomas Carson


William Thomas Carson was born on 20 March 1892 in Circular Road, Coleraine, County Londonderry, one of at least four children of RIC constable Thomas Carson and his wife Louisa (née White). His mother died when he was just four years old. By the time of the 1911 Census he was living at 4 Institution Road, Coleraine, with his father and two siblings.

Carson enlisted in the North Irish Horse between July 1908 and early 1911 (regimental number unknown).

It appears that he had left the regiment by the outbreak of the war in August 1914.
