Upton OS Posted 11 November , 2013 Share Posted 11 November , 2013 I'd like to obtain as much detail as possible about the events and actions of my great uncle's regiment 1st Northamptonshire up to Aubers Ridge where he died. Many helpful posts in GWF forums but am unsure how to obtain war diary and other information about the unit as a whole. Also, other sources which might make mention of my great uncle and build a picture of the men he served with. Great uncle was Lt. Charles Selwyn Cowley; he joined the Army in 1912. I don't know which company he served in. I do have a photo album he started before the war showing him and other subalterns larking around. A picture home on leave Feb 15. Then small snaps of blasted country near Neuve Chapelle. One of his fellow officers pictured was Bacon (- just found an image of him from 1924 via Google/flickr indicating he was one of the two officers unscathed at Aubers). (The album was continued by his brother, my grandfather with many images of members of his RFA unit up to and including the occupation of Germany. Glad to know how best I might share these images with those potentially interested) James Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
