paul leighton Posted 8 October , 2013 Share Posted 8 October , 2013 Ive been trying to add details to one of the men on my medal site, He's Pte william Leighton S-22813 and his details are found in my Leightons K.I.A section http://paulcj71979.wix.com/leighton-war-medals Most of his details are there, but one source says he was missing in March & the CWGC say that his death date is 1/4/18. I carn't find any war diarys for this date, only the odd paragraph. On the evening of the 30th March the 4/5th proceeded to Villers Brettoneux,the strength of the Battalion was one officer and 30 other ranks.On Sunday morning,March 31st the remnants of the 118th Brigade moved to Longeau,near Genelles then on to Rumaisnie by motor bus where on April 1st what was left of the four Battalions of the 118th Brigade was formed into one unit and eventually reached Linnier on the 3rd. this is one but there's lots from different regiments dairy's and now i'm confused, When, where and how did this man die any help welcome Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
