Recommended Posts

Begging for some help Please ! as I can't find very much information regarding the 1st Warwickshires on the 25th April 1915.

I know they received 500 casualties  it was a counter attack, shortly after the Germans launched the first gas attack .


I believe Bruce Bairnsfather was wounded in this action. But really have very little infoso would be very greatful for any pointers or info .


Any info really I would be very greatful 


Many Regards.
