Remembered Today:

Major R A. Fawcett 6th West Yorks


Recommended Posts

I understand that there is a photo of Major R. A. Fawcett in the history of the 6th West Yorks by Capt. E.V. Tempest. I would be really grateful if someone could scan the pic for me. If Fawcett gets any mentions in the text that would be great too.

I'd appreciate it. The war diary is very shy at mentioning men by name, even officers. He was badly wounded on 1 July 1916, by the way.
