Jan Walker Posted 26 May , 2016 Share Posted 26 May , 2016 I am continuing with my write up of the men commemorated on our village war memorial in readiness for a service in June. I am now researching John Tom Batty Sharp who was born in Bainton, East Yorkshire in 1896. John served with the 1st Battalion of the Irish Guards, regimental number 12524 and died of wounds in the number 12 General Hospital, France on the 29th May 1918. He is buried in the St Sever Cemetery Extension at Rouen. If anyone can add anything about his war service or what might have been happening to the Battalion during 1918 up to 29th May I would be very grateful. It is, I guess, going to be impossible to know how long he was in the hospital or what event caused his fatal wounds but any information is very welcome. The Forum has been massively supportive with my research to date and I am very grateful. Jan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
