Good morning all,

 

Looking for information on where the 10th Bn were in October 1917, more specifically on and around 11/10/17 when Pte James Duffy of Easton Berks was killed in action.

 

Many thanks,

The main attack did not occur until the 12th when ORs were 15 killed and 150 wounded.

Moving up into the attack positions on the 11th, though the War Diary has no mention of it, 5 ORs were killed. (SDGW).
