Recommended Posts

Hi I’m looking for any information in diaries for my great grandfather Thomas Wilson , he was killed in le fleurs trench in the Somme on 1st Oct 1916 , he is listed as missing and his name is on the thetfal memorial. I’m looking for any info on how he may have died . He joined up as pals regiment in Mansfield wood house in Nottinghamshire, he’s on that memorial too .
