liverbird Posted 9 November , 2013 Share Posted 9 November , 2013 Hi I hope someone out there can put me on the right track with this question. My husbands grandfather was part of this Battalion as shown on the CWWG site and I am sure he was one of the men who landed in Le Havre in August 1914, I wonder does any one know the timeline for this Battalion from then to the Battle of Loos were he died on the 25th September 1915 and is buried in St Mary's dressing station. I have followed everything through on the site and it would appear this Battalion as part of the 1st division was engaged in the Battle of Mons on the 23rd August then the Battle of Marne 7-10 Sept and later doing other engagements and on to Loos. I am getting bogged down with info and don't want to make any huge errors in my research on him, looks as though these poor chaps were literally thrown in at the deep end with no lifebelt or redress, makes my heart cry to read some of the accounts that ordinary people had thrown at them all in one year. Regards to all who pick this request up. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
