R. J. S. Thorpe-Tracey

Hi there,

I think this man served with the 6th battalion but am not sure. I wonder if anyone can help. Does anyone have the regimental/battalion diary?

He was a Private, then Lance Corporal and finally was commisioned as a 2nd Lt. as which I believe he served in the battle of Loos.

Thanks in advance.
