Tomhoops21 Posted 18 November , 2013 Share Posted 18 November , 2013 Hello all, My Great Grandfathers Brother served in the great war in the 1st/24th Battalion London Regiment which was part of the 47th (2nd London division). His name was Private Joseph Roberts 723014 born in Tiverton, Devon and lived in Wrangway, Wellington, Somerset. He died 08/06/2017 and if I am not mistaken that was the second day of the Battle of Messines. He is on the Menin Gate Memorial for the missing at Ypres and this is all the information i know about him. I am very keen to find any information about him as my Grandfather gave me letters Joseph wrote to my Great Grandfather and my Great Great Grandmother (Joseph's mother) whilst he was in the trenches. Unfortunately my Grandfather is Getting on now so i would love to be able to tell him things about his uncle. If anyone has any information or any ideas how to get info on him, even a picture. It would be really very much appreciated. Thank you for reading this and possibly helping. All the best Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
