Remembered Today:

The Fraser brothers

Mike Fennell

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm a newbie. Apologies if I stray across any boundary lines. I'm researching three brothers who were geat uncles of mine. They all served in the 27th Siege Battery. They were Arthur, Arnold and Frank (Francis) Fraser. 2nd Lieutenant Arthur Leslie Fraser (born 1887 or possibly 1888) died of his wounds in 1917 during, I believe, the 2nd Battle of Arras. Consequently I know more about him than his two brothers who evidently survived the conflict. I would be grateful for any additional information
