I have been asked by an ex serviceman to find details of a relative kia 21 March 1918 and buried at Menin Road South. I have MIC , medal roll , CWGC , SDGW and census details .

Does anyone have a war diary extract for 1/4th Y&L for 21 Mar 1918 and a couple of days prior please ?

I believe member "auchonvillerssomme" has them on pdf but he has been offline since 8 Nov and PM not answered :unsure:
