Remembered Today:

Men buried at Ramscapelle Road Cemetery

Recommended Posts

I've just been visiting the Nieuwpoort area and came across Ramscapelle Road Cemetery. If anyone has any detail about the actions the following were involved in I would be very grateful as I've not got the relevant regimental histories.

Three 1/Cameron highlanders in row D: J Miller, R. Miller and A McKenzie, all killed on 3 July 1917. Is it possible these Millers were brothers? Where were the 1/Camerons exactly?

There are a large number of 17/Highland Light Infantry here - sadly 48 of them and unknowns. Were these men killed in the Strandfest operation on 26/27th June 1917 ?

Thanks Tommy and Cnock. Clearly not brothers then! Tommy which book? Aristocrats or Departed Warriors?

Departed Warriors - picked it up from Jason D at the tourist place - obviously has a local interest for me! Liked the photos section especially - great to have a good family archive to work with.

Regards, Tommy.
