Hi Robert,

John Mcconkey would have enlisted around early 1915. He was most likely killed during an artillery bombardment on the 6th April, B company took the brunt of the barrage, several other men in the battalion where killed during the same attack. 7th where relieved later that day by the 8th battalion.

Hope this helps,

Stephen
