Michael Pegum Posted 17 November , 2013 Share Posted 17 November , 2013 On 25th October, 1917, north-west of Ypres, the British West Indies Regiment sustained an odd cluster of deaths: Serjeant C. Brown, Serjeant G. Browne, Serjeant W. Cunah and Serjeant H. Johnson, together with Corporal Adrian A. Davis and Private James Williams. They were buried in Canada Farm Cemetery (III. G. 22 - 27). Two privates of the same regiment had died three days previously, and one private died five days later, so it wasn't part of a pattern. Does this suggest that the Sergeant's Mess was hit by a shell? Is there any other situation in which this pattern of ranks could have been involved? If anyone has access to a war diary, the problem might be solved.
