Deserter and Traitor?


Recommended Posts

Pte Lipmann, W Coy, 2nd Royal Fusiliers was of Russian parentage, volunteered in August 1914 and served in Gallipoli.

On 28th June 1916, on the Somme he volunteered for a patrol with the intention of deserting to the Germans.

This he did and provided the Germans with a lot of information about the forthcoming Somme offensive.

Does anybody know what became of Lipmann?
