Remembered Today:

3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards


Recommended Posts

Hi There, :)

I am interested in the movements on and around 14-17th September 1916.

Also during research on a man KIA 14-17th I found that there were many men in that Battalion who have open KIA dates. I know the reasons as to why this might happen, but what are the specific reasons in this case ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
