Hi there,

Is anyone going to Vieille-Chapelle New Military Cemetery, Lacouture as I have a photo request for the following soldier:

Thomas Himsworth 31944 10th (Shropshire and Cheshire Yeomanry) King's Shropshire Light Infantry and Notts & Derby 104183 who died on 22nd August 1918

he is in VI B 11.

He is shown on his MIC as PTE however on the cemetery details he is listed a Lce Cpl.

I would also appreciate any information that anyone may think would help me in obtaining how he died or what conflict he was in, in fact anything?

I am very grateful.

Alan

Alan,

I was in the Neuve Chapelle area over the weekend and, finally, managed to get the Vieille Chapelle.

I have the photos of the headstone of Cpl/Pte Himsworth.

Sorry its taken so long to get them.

If you can pm your email I'll gladly forward them.

Best regards,

Wayne
