gem Posted 29 January , 2018 Share Posted 29 January , 2018 Hi All, My cousin is visiting Ypres in the near future to view a great uncles memorial panel. She is also going to visit the Bertincourt area where our Grandfather was killed during the March offensive He was actually an in from the cold case, so is not commemorated on the Thiepval memorial, (which i believe is where the majority of unknowns from the battle/s in this area are ) However, what she would like to do, is visit the cemetry he would most likely of been buried in if he's body had been recovered. would anyone have any idea wich cemetry this might be ? Below is an excerpt from a post from a few years back given the position of his regiment.He was Percy James March R/52185 D company 17th Royal Fusiliers The 17th Battalion Royal Fusiliers were to the east of Villers-au-Flos in the RED line on the morning of the 24th and by early afternoon of the same day were near Ligny Thilloy.
