Remembered Today:

Question about possible units


Recommended Posts

This is a very long shot (and i'm not sure if i'm asking in the right section) but does anyone know of a British Army batt. that would have served (purely on the Western Front) at Yorkshire Trench, near Essex Farm the Beaumont Hamel/ Hawthorn Ridge area of the Somme twice in 1916, possibly Hill 62, I'm researching this for a friend but i can't find one that fits all the locations. The soldier may not have served at the places in the order i have put them Its possible that they also had people in the Christmas Truce, and later, in 1917, service in the Tynecot area.

Any ideas would be much appreciated

Welcome to the forum

What's the evidence for the various locations? The Xmas Truce evidence would probably be most helpful as there were only a limited number of units in the area of Ploegsteert.

Does the soldier have a name? This may be a more fruitful route for research than a speculative unit. And, in this, I suggest you have a read of the research pages of the Long Long Trail (link top left of this page)
