Remembered Today:

2nd Devons August 1915

I'm trying to find out where the 2nd Devons front line was in the last half of August 1915. The war diary doesn't seem to have much information, but I could well have missed something. The Regimental History tends to gloss over the period. They weren't far removed from where they'd been ever since the previous November. One casualty for the 27th Aug is buried in the Rue Petillon Cem, so I know it was somewhere around there. Does anyone have information perhaps over and above the diary and history that could help pinpoint their positions with more accuracy?

Any efforts made to help are much appreciated.

Hi Jon,

Have you got a copy of the Brigade HQ war diary? It may well add some detail, and at the same time provide a more strategic overview.

I think that they were part of 23rd Brigade. Headlines of the content can be seen at http://www.nmarchive.com/war-diary-result/1708-1267/page/2/ As a one off though, it would be cheaper to download a copy from the National Archive. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C14053379
