Tafski,

Could you look up a Captain Archibald Hardman killed on 4 October 1917? I want to know the location of where he was killed.

Many thanks for this, it is much appreciated,

Steve Garnett

I hope I am not treading on Tafski's toes here, but I saw the thread and have the diary.

The diary states that their objectives were the road running just west of Reutel from about J.11.c.51.20 to J.11.55.50. (Someone may be able to help ID these references).

There is some sort of map so if you PM me your e-mail address I pass it on.

Regards,

Graeme

I have marked the approximate section of the road between the two crosses. the British front line is at 24/10/1917. Map courtesy of TNA Trench Map CD.

Don,t know if you can help or if I am in the right 'thread' ....... Researching a Great Uncle - Cpl Michael Layden.

His records show him joining the 9th Battalion KOYLI 'in the field' on 29/12/16.

The next entry shows him as wounded on the 4/10/17 and being removed to the 2nd Canadian Casualty Clearing Station at Remy Siding. Their War Diary (2nd CCCS) makes reference to the battle at Broodseinde Ridge, but all I can find on that are references to Australian and New Zealand forces.

Do you know where the 9th KOYLI were on the 4/10/17 ..... were they involved in Broodseinde Ridge - is this the most likely spot that my ancestor received his injuries - if not where ???

How could I get hold of the War Diary for the 9th on the 4/10/17 ??

Thanks - David Sharpe

I am researching the KOYLI 9th Bt and in particular on the third of May 1917. Can anyone help with regimental diaries for this date. It's when my great great uncle Pt Richard Wadge and his friend Sgt Nicolas White were killed and subsequentaly buried at the Henin Communal Cemetery Extension. They both lived in the same village in County Durham and worked in the local Co-op together. I am visiting the cemetery in Henin -sur- cojeul with my friend and Sergeant Whites great great nephew.  

Any help or advice would be gratefully received .

I apologise if this is the incorrect way to approach the task but This is my first visit.

Many thanks
