Hey Pals

I'm doing a bit of research for a friend and I've drawn a bit of a blank, can anyone tell me where 1/6 Gloucestershire Reg were on 23/7/1916, the Brigades diary isn't online yet (the other two are) so I'm hoping someone on here has a copy .

Also does anyone know if there is a Divisional History for 48th Division?

The Glosters history has an account of the events surrounding The Battle of Pozieres Ridge with a detailed map.

PM me your email address if the material is of interest

Regards

Of all the Divisional Histories published by Naval and Military Press there isn't one for 48 Division.

Martin PM sent, thank you so much!

Sotonmate, Well thats just my luck, would have been nice to send him a copy of it as a gift, would give him a picture of what his Uncle went through until he was killed on the 23/07/1916

Cheers guys much appreciated.

Gaz,

On the 22nd they were relieved by the 1/4th Battalion and moved back to trenches around DONNET POST, La Boiselle.

The 1/6th were hit hard with casualties in July.

Officers:-

5 killed

2 died of wounds.

10 wounded.

Other Ranks:-

15 killed.

62 missing believed killed.

5 died of wounds.

296 wounded.

I have the war diary for that period and the additional attack supplements.

PM your e-mail address and I will send over.

Regards,

Simon.
