Remembered Today:

44409 Gnr Peter Abbie - “Y” 18th TM Bty


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have the war diary entry for “Y” 18th TM Battery for July 1st 1916? The above soldier was killed, and I was just wondering what and where the battery was on this date.


Many Thanks

The battery was part of the 18th Division. One of the few units to take their objectives. They and the 30th Division were around Montauban-de-Picardie in the south of the attack.

couple of newspaper articles in July 1916 including one with text of a letter from a Sgt in his company. No details of his death.
