Remembering all the men of 47th London Division who died in the battle of Le Transloy Ridge. May they rest in peace.

Must have missed this one, as I had just joined the Forum.

Gone, but not forgotten.

May they all rest in peace....

Dear Thomas

I have just returned from a visit to the First World War battlefields, including a visit to Tiepval memorial where my Great Uncle Willam Edward Gianone is remembered. We would appreciate any information that you may have with reference to my Great Uncle and the battle of Le Transloy Ridge.

Thanking you,

Ann Luscombe and John Storer

Ann - I missed your post as I have been off the forum for a few weeks. The 19th London Old Comrades is still going strong and we would like to hear from you. Do you know anything about your gt-uncle? Was he of Italian ancestry?

Your great uncle would probably have been killed in the trench fighting in the Flers line a little south of Eaucourt L'Abbaye.

Charles sorry for not replying earlier, I haven't been onto the site for a long time.

Thankyou for your reply with information re. my Great Uncle William E Gianone. Yes he was of Swiss Italian decent ie. his mother was English but his father was Swiss from Ticino, he came to England as a young man.

There was not only William but another son Constant who was in the London Regiment (6th City of London Rifles). His service details Rifleman No 2330 joined September 3rd 1914, Killed September 25th 1915 Battle of Loos.

He is buried with 86 others ie. 86 other ranks and/ Officers somewhere in the Maroc Cemetry, Grenay. Special memorial 21. 87 Stones in one line each named but stating the remains are not with the memorial stone. We were told that the 87 were most likely buried altogether before the actual cemetary was erected. Another brother Ernest survived.

Look forward to hearing from you

Regards

Ann

Ann, thanks for that extra info on William E Gianone. i will try and drop you a line. However, I think you may need to get up to 10 posts before I can PM you.

Charles
