Hi Barry, looking into a Pvt William Leary who died 21st Oct 1916, what was the 8th Battalion up to around that time? I know that Pvt Leary has no known grave and is on the Menin gate. A friend asked me to find out about him, typically have been in wipers two weekends in the last three weeks and then get asked about someone listed! She passes me a letter Willie wrote to my friends grandmother, his cousin. He was 1st & 2nd Battalion in Gallipoli according to his Medal Card. Any info would be most appreciated Martin
