Hi Andy

Here is all the info. I have on 18203 Pte. Maharry, Robert. Born Barrow-in-Furness, Lancs. Enlisted Barrow-in-Furness, Lancs. Landed in France/Flanders 02/10/15 and joined 5th. I do not know when he trans. to 6/K.S.L.I. Aged 31 at time of death. Son of Betsy & Hamilton of 255 Duke St., Barrow-in-Furness, husband of Alice of 5 Dartmouth St., Vickerstown, Barrow-in-Furness. His name is on the Menin Gate Memorial. Info. from 1914-15 Star Medal Roll, C.W.G.C. & Soldiers Died.

The 6/K.S.L.I. were holding Railway Wood sector and were on the left of the Canadians. The Battalion supported the Canadians left flank during 2nd and 3rd June, and had been continually under fire. It only lost 33 men wounded according to war diary but poor Pte. Maharry does seem to have been killed during this time but he is the only one.

Sorry if I have given more info. then whated :(

If no one as given info. on other three chaps before I can find then I'll add that in ten mins.
