Remembered Today:

Battle of Messines Ridge


Recommended Posts

Would anyone have a list of the Artillery Brigades that were involved in the build up to the Battle of Messines Ridge on the 7th June 1917.

The reason i ask is, i am researching a soldier who died on the 7th June 1917, i know he died of gas poisoning which he recieved a few days previous.

He was in the 149th bde, RFA, part of 30 Division. I suspect they were attatched to another division for the battle, however i cannot confirm.

As he is buried at Lijssenthoek i know that he was roughly in the area.

If anyone could help i would be most grateful.

I have looked for the brigades war diary at the National Archives, whether it is my Computer illiteracy or they have not got them i dont know.

many thanks
