Remembered Today:

Does anybody have 10 Notts and Derby?


Recommended Posts

Does anybody have the war diary for this period please? I'm researching somebody who died of gas-related complications and who was posted home on the 7th September (died a week or so later). I'm guessing that he would have been gassed a couple of weeks earlier? I'd be interested to know if there are records of the unit taking a gas attack in that period

I had a quick look in the 10th Bn book by Lt Hoyte and whilst mention is made of shelling there is nothing specific about gas attacks. Although as the German's where retreating from the Somme at this time some of the shells would probably be gas.

They went into the line near Flers on 28/29th August after being Div Reserve.
