The Glasgow Highlanders suffered numerous casualties on this day in an attack at Villers-Guislain. It would be worth looking up the battalion War Diary on Ancestry or via The National Archives for info, though Other Ranks were typically not mentioned by name.


A previous Forum thread discusses this action (and in fact quotes the WD) here.


Cheers, Pat
