Somebody can help me ? I lose myself in this matter.

I am on the research for the regiment where the 12th Bty RFA was attached to in sept. 1917 and where they are on this moment (in Flanders or north France).

It concerns gunner ROBINSON James Alfred (serv.nr 81330)à, dieds 16 sept 1917 and buried in Westouter (Flanders)

His brother Charles Frederick, ASC 594 MT Coy, died on the same day and is buried also in Westouter (same grave , two headstones)

Thanks in advance

Marc (from Flanders)

594 MT Coy ASC were the Ammunition Column for the 35th Brigade RFA of 7 Division,of which 12 Battery RFA was a part.So one brother was bringing more ammunition for the other brother to fire ! We don't know where they were hit but they must have been together for a chat,a meal or a drink when they were killed. It must have been Flanders and very near Westouter !

What a price for any family with three brothers killed within a year of each other.

The 35 Brigade RFA War Diary is WO95/1643 if you need to be exact on the position.
