Cockayne Posted 4 November , 2002 Share Posted 4 November , 2002 I am planning to visit the site of an action that took place on 20 July 1918 by 2nd/4th York and Lancaster Regiment (187th Brigade,62nd Division) in the vicinity of Courmas, Bois de Reims ,Bouilly and Commetrevil Chateau during the second battle of the Marne. During this action my Great Uncle William A Williamson was killed and is buried near by at Bouilly Cross Roads Military Cemetery. I wondered if: - 1. Anyone have visited the battlefield site or cemetery 2. Does anyone know of a company that run tours in this area Also would I be right to assume the Second battle of the Marne was predominately a USA/France action with only the British 51st & 62nd Divisions involved.
