HI

LOOKING FOR ANY INFORMATION ON B-3033 HENRY WROE OF THE 10TH BATTALION RIFLE BRIGADE

WHO DIED AT CAMBRAI ON DECEMBER 3RD 1917,

ALSO HIS MEDICAL CARD STATES A QUALIFYING DATE OF 19-5-15

BUT THE 20TH LIGHT DIVISION WERE NOT IN FRANCE UNTIL 21ST JULY AS I UNDERSTAND.

WOULD HENRY HAVE BEEN IN THE 8TH OR 9TH BRIGADE AND TRANSFERRED LATER,

GRATEFUL FOR ANY INFORMATION.

THANKS

TREV

The OP doesn't appear to have been back on the Forum since he posted his request for info.

 

Something must have happened to him.

 

I was wondering about this 'medical card' he mentions too.

Try 7th Battalion, suffered from Gas in early July 15 and was wounded on I think 27th July. Both the effect of gas and wounding were while the battalion was in reserve.
