Hi Coldstreamer

I'm researching men on my local war memorial and I have a Alfred Edmonds who enlisted in the name of Edwards R/N 16665. He died of wounds on March 2nd 1918 and I'm trying to get some idea from the war diary of how he possibly got his wounds. I know its a long shot but there may be some obvious action he could have possibly have been in

nothing major on this date - wounds could have been several days / weeks before

if you out a post asking where or what 3FA is it may help -

Hi Coldstreamer

You were correct about 3 FA, can you tell me the source which stated where Edmonds died and if possible the whereabouts of the 1st batallion from late February to March 2nd.

Thanks
