I am researching details of the above soldier who was KIA 28/9/18. I have details of his burial, but am struggling to find in what action he would have been taking. (His family have noted Dof D as 27/9, so perhaps he died of wounds.) He transfered from the RFC to the Corps, date unknown.

Gary, thanks for the information. I have the details of his burial from CWGC. My research is for my physiopherapist. He is a distant relative of him ,so details are a bit sparse. I would like to find out in what action he was on the DOD. The official history doen't really help.

Best wishes. Terry

Hi Terry and welcome to the forum

The simplest way would be to check the Bn war diary - one of the Forum pals is likely to have it so just hang on in there

checking the "History of the Tanks" by Basil Liddell-Hart there was a major action on 27 Septmeber when First and Third Army pushed through the German lines on the Canal du Nord. Although 2nd Bn is not mentioned in the history, the location of his grave makes ir reasonable that he was invovled in this action.
