Hi all,

I am researching this Officer who was killed on 10th July 1916 with C company 2nd Manchesters.

I have his papers and war diary for the month but was wondering if anyone has any more detail of their time on the Somme up until his death ?

(especially the action on the 10th)

Does anybody have the Regiment History ?

Tony,

I've got his papers which are very detailed and also the war diaries which state he attacked with his men but were up there by themselves and were surrounded. They were bombed from 3 sides and he was killed.

An account of the action would be great.
