dickaren Posted 1 February , 2018 Share Posted 1 February , 2018 There is an unknown British Officer Wiltshire Regiment buried in plot 15 row E grave 12 in AIF Burial Ground Flers. Plot 15 row E graves 6-13 were all found at map ref 57d.R31.c48.52 and five of these are identified and all from 1st battalion Wiltshires and all killed on 7th July 1916. The only missing 1st battalion officer killed on 7th July on Thiepval Memorial is 2nd Lt John Stratton Hayward so a strong candidate. Unfortunately three other missing 1st Wiltshire officers listed below were killed on either 6th or 8th July so cannot be ruled out. Capt Hales 6.7.16 2nd Lt Starky 6.7.16 Lt Gosden 8.7.16 Any comments/thoughts anyone? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
