Any info (service records, pension details, MID etc) on the two officers named above would be appreciated. They were with the 177 early in 1917.

Major Wilkinson was "killed in action" 31/7/17. Any further info on this also appreciated.

Cheers,

Garry

Hi,

Major M H Wilkinson -

His death is announced in the London Times edition of Wednesday August 8, 1917.

Under heading "Killed in Action"

"WILKINSON - Killed in action on 31st July. Major Maurice Hewson Wilkinson, M.C. R.E., second son of the late Revd. John Wilkinson and brother of the Revd. J. R. Wilkinson, Rector of Winford, Somerset, and Leonard Wilkinson, Bushey, Herts."

I can send you a copy if you PM your email address.

Do you have his MIC?

John

Major M H Wilkinson also appears under the heading "Fallen Officers" in the Times edition of Tuesday August 28, 1917. I am trying to save the page but having difficulty so I'll post a screen shot in a minute -

Don't know why but I can't upload that attachment. If you send your email address I'll send you both files.
