My Uncle George William Cooper born 1896 was a Driver with the above unit when he was killed aged 21 on 29th September 1917. He was buried with 7 of his comrades from D Battery in Caesars Nose Cemetery near Ypres (now Ieper). They were all killed on the same day.

Does anyone have any information from War Diaries etc which might tell me where his unit was in the months before and up to his death. I would dearly like to know how Uncle George and his comrades were killed and what his unit were doing at the time.

Many thanks

Bad news - the war diary for 92nd Bde RFA is missing for September 1917.

There may be mention in the 20th Division Commander Royal Artillery Diary - I had problems downloading this from the National Archives website earlier as the link I use was broken. You can try and download it for £3.50 below however:

Kind regards

Hi Colin,

I have successfully downloaded the 20th Division Commander Royal Artillery Diary for September 1917. There are no named individuals obviously but I have some idea now of where Uncle Georges Brigade were operating in the weeks leading up to his death.

Many thanks for your help.

Fred
