Richard Banastre Crosse (1888-1970) was born at Macclesfield in Cheshire in 1880, and educated at Bilton Grange Preparatory School, Rugby School and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. He was commissioned into the Oxfordshire Light Infantry in 1906, two years before it became the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. He was seconded to the Government of Northern Ireland in an intelligence role in 1922 and, having retired from the army in 1923, he then joined the Ulster Special Constabulary. He died in at Crewe on 10 May 1970. I have been sent a short article on Lt-Col Crosse for use in Bugle & Sabre, the journal of the Friends of the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. However, it contains no family details whatsoever, and as I no longer have access to Ancestry I am unable to add much to the Ms. (which concentrates on his military career). I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to look up just a few basic details of his early life in Cheshire?
