Philb-c Posted 11 June , 2019 Share Posted 11 June , 2019 I have in my possession a small hand written document returned to the next of kin of IWJ CLACK (see below) but I am at a loss as to some of the content and wonder if anyone could shed any light on it ? The document reads as follows: GS 17164 DA 22968 Infantry Record Office, Hounslow. On the Battlefield at Carnoy - about 3/4 mile North East of church at Carnoy 2 1/4 miles East of Fricourt - 3 1/4 miles East south East of Albert - on the right of the Mountain Road - the most advanced of the mass - ref to map sheet 62c sqr A8a i/c Infantry Records Hounslow I W J Clack What I would like to ascertain, if you are able to assist, is the purpose of the document but specifically the interpretation of "GS 17164" and "DA 22968" ? Private CLACK served with “D company, 7th battalion, The Queen’s” and was killed on 1st July 1916. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
