Northamptonshire Regiment deployment July 1915


Recommended Posts

I'm researching the war experiences of my great grandfather Albert Edward George Reynolds - 17171 6th Platoon B Company 2nd Northamptonshire Regiment. He died on 9th/10th July 1915 and is buried at Rue-Petillon Military Cemetery, Fleurbaix. I have the Regimental diary for this period and it suggests that he was in the area West of Yser Canal/Compton Corner/Turco Farm/Fusilier Farm in the days 1st to 5th July. As the Rue-Petillon Cemetery is next to the 'Eaton Hall' dressing station I am assuming that he was badly wounded and died at the dressing station. I plan to visit his grave on the 100th anniversary next year and want to see the actual area where he fought - can anyone shed anymore light on what I have found so far and where I go next with my research?
