Fattyowls Posted 5 December , 2018 Share Posted 5 December , 2018 Chums I'm doing a little project for the family of Joe Mercer, the former Everton, Arsenal and England player, and manager of Manchester City and England. Joe's father, Joe senior served with the 17th Middlesex, and they were involved in holding part of Delville Wood with the 2nd South Staffs at the end of July, attacked between the wood and Guillemont with the 1st King's Liverpool on 8th August, and attacked in support of the 2nd South Staffs on the Redan Ridge near the Quadrilateral on 13th November. I have a sense that to be involved three times was nothing out of the ordinary on the Somme in 1916; would anyone care to comment on my hunch? Pete.
