15949 Sjt John Sinclair 12 Bn DLI


Recommended Posts

Hi chaps,

The gentleman above is my great Uncle, he was KIA on the 01 Jan 17 in Ypres. I have visited his grave at Railway Dugouts and managed to download the war diary of the Bn. All it really says is that 2 sergeants were killed during an artillery barrage, no mention of names or further details. Can anyone tell me more about the Bn's movements at that time and how I may be able to find out any further info etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The incident is mentioned in the text on page 204.

Tiplady was a stretcher bearer going to assist the wounded when he was caught by the barrage.
