Good day all,

Could anybody help with information on what the 4th North Staffs were involved in on the 29th September 1918? My chap was killed in action and is buried in Hooge Crater Cemetery.

Regards.

Llew.

From a one line diary of Pte Arnold Sibbering D.C.M. 4th N. Staffs:-

27/9/1918 went carring bombs up for morning

28/91918 went over the top 6.30 a.m. went to Canal Bank got 46 prisoners. (awarded D.C.M.)

29/9/1918 went over again without barrage, raining nearing Menin

30/9/1918 went over again, went 1000 yards, stopped two counter attacks.

1/10/1918 got bullet through left hand, 8.0.p.m.

Cliff,

Thanks for that, doesn't it sound so matter of fact, just another day, which I suppose it was to many men.

Regards.

Llew.

The war diary states for 6/7 Feb 1918: 'On right battalion front. Patrols sent out along Spriet Road towards Papa Farm, and towards Spider Cross Roads. 1 OR Killed, 2 OR wounded.'

Presumably your man was killed whilst on one of these patrols.

Kind regards

Thanks so much for this information it's a lot more information than I've been able to locate before as I'm very new to all this. It helps to just put together a picture of these guys sacrifice which I'm intrigued about especially as I've served myself.

Thanks again

Paul.
