Albert George Wicks, born 1877 near Hurst, Berks

Served as 5088, 2nd Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment, having joined about 1897/8

SDGW says KIA 7th May 1918

CWGC gives the same date, and buried in Gonnehem British Cemetery

But weren't the 2/Warks in Italy from November 1917 until the end of the war?

Any ideas/solutions would be welcome

His medal roll only shows 2nd Bn.

CWGC says 4 Division were in the area of Gonneheim

The cemetery was begun in the middle of April 1918, when the German front line came within 3.2 kilometres of the village. It was made by fighting units and by the burial officers of the XIII Corps and the 4th Division, and used until September. After the Armistice graves were brought into Row H from the battlefields east of Gonnehem.

Perhaps he was attached/seconded to 1st Bn which was in 4 Div for all the war?
