Oops, I edited my previous post, and hadn't seen your reply. I am new to the forum and still figuring it out.

I was wondering if you have the original page entry?
It is wonderful that you did all this work.  If you don't mind I will post about it in my genealogy blog.

Really pleased! The whole reason I transcribe WDs and place them on here is so that their names are added to the search engine. Brilliant

I'm looking for My Great Uncle Walter Speight's No.17 Casualty Clearing station records (REME Sidings).

He died of wounds 10.06.17, He wrote in his diary every day up until the 6th June 1917. His last entry in his personal war diary states "In the St Peter's Street assembly trench waiting for time to mount" I found out recently this trench was near Armagh Wood/ Observatory Ridge/ Sanctuary dump area after looking at old trench maps of the area.

I believe he was injured and taken to the No.17 CCS where he died of wounds. Any more information would be great.

Hi Woody71 and welcome to the Forum. Unfortunately, at the end of May 1917, the WD ceased naming casualties. I hope you are successful in finding another source. Is there anything in the 8th KOYLI WD?

Can't seem to find the War diary of the 8th KOYLI I think it may have been damaged/ destroyed somehow. I could be wrong though.

Hopefully someone will be able to point me in the right direction.

If you have a subscription to Ancestry the WD is hiding under Various [Infantry Brigades 23rd Division] so if you put in 2187 and start at page 58 you are in for quite a decent read

19.08.15

11:30am No 26606 Pte R Baish, RGA, shell wound right thigh, died.

12 noon Stopped taking in.

Admissions into hospital 115; evacuated to No 10 ambulance train 121; to No 4 Stationary Hospital, Arques, 5 dental and 2 eye cases; number in hospital at midnight 55.

The above 4 patients who died yesterday and today were buried at 3pm.

 

 

Many thanks for posting this WD giving much fascinating detail to the activity at the CCS, a particularly busy one!

I am researching the history of 122nd and was particularly interested to see the entry above regarding 'Pte' Baish RGA

Gunner Roland Baish was serving with 122nd Heavy Battery at the time of his death. Their position was just to the South of Kruisstraat (about a mile SW of Ypres).

He was wounded in the right thigh by shell fire, and evacuated to No 17 CCS on the 18th August 1915 at around 6.30 p.m.. The shell splinter came from a burst of '8 inch' shells which had landed just behind their 4.7 inch gun, three others were also wounded.

Thank you!

Alan

You're most welcome, Alan. The whole reason for posting transcribed WDs is so that rellies/researchers can pick them up in a search. I particularly enjoyed this one as there is so much information regarding the injuries/time of death etc

Hi Diane,

 

my name is Jurgen and I'm from Belgium.

After plowing through archives and links I found this entry of yours.

Let me start with saying how amazing it is what you did here.

I'm not that good with the whole archive site from Canada but I think it's great that stuff like it exists.

From time to time I manage to find some info there but for the No 17 CCS I found nothing. Probably because it was British.

Anyway, I was wondering if I could receive the original entry for the death of Farrington W on August 19th 1916.

I have adopted his grave and I am retracing his steps up until the moment he died.

 

Thank you again for all of your hard work.
