Remembered Today:

6th Queen's Own at Ovilliers

Jonathan Saunders

Recommended Posts

Remembering the 385 All Ranks of the 6th Bn The Queen's Own, killed, wounded or prisoners, as a result of being ordered to attack the German trenches at Ovilliers in the early moring of 3rd July 1916; enfiladed due to no flank protection (X Corps attack cancelled), met uncut wire, at least three defensive bands of enemy MG fire to their front and pounded by German artillery from Pozieres.

This nonsense and your sacrifice is remembered.
