Remembered Today:

2nd Bn South Staffordshire Regt


Recommended Posts


I am trying to peice together the last movements of Lt (Captain) Douglas-Willan before he was KIA near MIRAMONT on the Somme on 17th Feb 1917. Does anybody have access to the War Diary for the 2nd Bn South staffordshire Regt for this period to see if his name is mentioned. As far as I can make out it was not during a major action, so possibly a trench raid, accident or just bad luck (wrong time, wrong place).

He's not mentionined in Trevor Pidgeon's book 'Boom Ravine'; the battle in which he probably died. However it may be interesting to read to get the bigger picture.
