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.

Your on about the attack on Mouse Trap Farm near Pilkem Ridge. 

A gas shell exploded and he suffered from shell shock and hearing problems

 

There is profile of one of the 1 Warwickshires in this book and gives a description of a few things that went on ! PAGE 1771
